I have heard of the 1979 Harleys Having a Vin Exception and I was wondering if there was an exception to the exception lol
My bike is titled as a 79' FXF, When I split the cases I found that they were cast in 12/78, but I am not sure if the bike was built at the same time. The engine has a 10 number vin on it, and the title does not match this. There are no letters on the engine, its starts off
1479 *** ***, the title has a conventional Harley Style Vin, but my sequence number does not fall into place with the range of bikes that have the exception.
The Exceptions says 43000H9 to 48199H9, my vin is 486**H9.
The only possible thing I can think of is that the engine was swapped, but I highly doubt it judging from the lady I got the bike from, its 99.5% original...
