    Thanks for posting. That must have been the instructors personal machine with those non-standard accessories such as the cooling fins on the front brake drum.

    My pleasure. What a great old archival film, I'm glad someone out there posted it to YouTube; I just wanted to make sure everyone on this forum gets to see it. The Harley featured has some very neat features that someone trying to restore a period police bike will find very interesting.

    The instructor needed to know his motorcycle better. He described the timer as a distributor. I enjoyed the flick though. Thanks.
