    My guess is 1935 because '34 still had the tool box on the fork, and I don't see a fork shroud like a '36. It was common for people to update the looks of their bikes with later decals, and paint jobs.

    That makes sense that it may have been updated, I couldn't find many pre 1936's with that decal on the tank
