    [QUOTE=Rubone;294136]Chris, I know you like to show your pics, but you also need to read text. We are talking "CLEAR LICENSE PLATE LENS" not taillight lens. And I am very aware of the changes to the red lens as I have posted my factory memo on it here before!

    Yup, I missed License.

    Robbie, I know you are expert on all things H-D. But you are wrong on this one. The tail light lens changed from Glass to Plastic in late 1955. It is seen in factory photos as the pattern in the glass lens is different than the plastic lens.
    There are repop glass lens in a repop box. They screwed up and copied the pattern of the plastic lens on their repops.
    Here is a factory photo of the 1955 glass lens.

    Robbie,
    Chris,
    I want to take a moment and say I appreciate everything both of you post.
    The memo says "California law" giving the impression "California law" may differ from all the other states.
    So is this California or everywhere ?

    Started in CA, but was adopted by the factory for all production going forward, so for all production from '56 up every bike regardless of state it was sent to. H-D didn't bother with state specific models back then like they did in the '70s.
