    Don't know who makes that particular model but I did a quick google search and came across this and thought it was kind of interesting.

    I have one of those Sporty Specialty KR-style bolt-on hardtails sitting out in my shop to be installed on my '73 XLCH. It is a very well-made piece of chopper-building equipment.

    Key word interesting, only ones I have ever seen in person made the bike look way too short. Personally I'd use struts before a bolt on one.

    Im not a fan of bolt on hardtails. I just use struts or weld on. For my bike i did struts since i didnt have any clue if i was going to like riding a hardtail. Found out that yup they ride stiff but i am fine with it. So now looking into doing a weld on setup.

    Lol Bob, I mean a dude here. Everybody seems to be a slave to the straight backbone weld on hardtail.

    I hear ya'! I don't understand the straight backbone thing either. What's really puzzling is why someone would want axle plates as big as a boomerang to solve a non-problem. Worse yet, the straight backbone makes the frame look too much like just another Big Twin rigid. I like the KR lines!

    Default Ironhead VIN question

    I did a search,but didn't see this particular scenario mentioned.
    Engine in question is purported to be a 1979 Ironhead.
    Question that arises is this-is there ever a scenario when multiple numbers are on an engine,and it is somehow kosher?Or is this always a red flag of illegal tampering?
    Here's the deal with the numbers-
    The top one is Star 7FXXXXXH8 Star. (yes there are numbers instead of X's).
    This number has been dashed totally across it's length as if it had been deleted.
    Right under this number there is another one,which is Star 3AXXXXXH9 Star.

    Best I can tell,the top 7F would have been a 1978 XLCR,and the bottom 3A would have been a 1979 XLH.

    Is there any sensible,legal way this could have come to pass?

    Thanks for any words of wisdom.

    Ben, the more I look at the original pic, it looks like zero stretch, which is more like the original KR. You'll have to check on that with the sporty specialties one. If its zero stretch your golden. Being as that is a Japanese built bike, they probably went one of two ways (if they didnt just buy it that way). As we know, the Japanese are ok with scouring the globe and finding an original. They are also very good at taking readily available things, and extensively modifying them to give the perfect look, while doing it in a way that looks factory

    Put a pic of the numbers up so we can see if they are legit MoCo numbers or aftermarket stamped. I've never heard of 2 sets of numbers on a case above/below each other and I know most states say that if any set of numbers are altered it would prompt a number search for stolen goods.

    That's unless you're CRFyou...he'd get CA DMW to issue him two titles, 1 for each set of digits.

    Ok after a bit of research, the sporty specialties has 4" stretch. But John Penner makes a replica KR tail more like the original with zero
