    Nice looking bike. It is a relatively low number '46 so the original owner did a few updates to it. Fender trim, extra chrome, Beck Saddlebags, a few later accessories (spark plug box did not exist, '48 rear fender tip, etc), rubber footboard mats, Deluxe police seat. all things that did not exist in '46 but an owner would have done as they became available to dress up his plain Jane stock '46. Had a sidecar at some point as well.

    wrong kick pedal & tank badges also.
    way too much chrome for an early 46.
    it is a beauty though!

    I agree that it should have a plastic block pedal for the kick starter, but those are the correct tank badges & strips for 1941-'46. Doc

    I sure like it. To bad the factory would not have offered it up that way.

    not quite right.
    early 46 had painted badges, same as 43,44,& 45 models. there were 2 or 3 different color badges used.
    late 46 had chrome badges.
    the strips were all stainless & the same from 41-46.
    my 46EL is a pretty late model, 46EL53XX & has chrome tank badges.
