    I did think the vin looked a bit wonky but I don’t have any KR vins to compare. Where our resident racing expert Robbie?

    Were the vins put on by the owners/dealers or the factory?

    KR VINs were factory applied and look pretty much the same as the regular bikes in those days. Not as Gothic looking as WR VINs. The bike pictured is a restamp. Cases were available as replacements since failure/blowups were common with racers. Many racers had multiple engines stamped with the same VIN, some had a practice engine, a race engine, a spare race engine, etc. It depended on the pockets of your sponsor, which generally was a large dealer but often the racers themselves. H-D was notoriously cheap in providing support!

    KRTT models like the eBay bike were not nearly as common as the KR track bikes were since Road Racing wasn't as big and there were only a few major events in the annual season, such as Daytona and Laconia. Early on many racers just used their flattrackers for roadracing.

    During the Indian big base years,they sent a spare unstamped engine to the sponsor dealer.

    yeah, i caught myself scheming how to buy the thing if the price stays in the reasonable range which it may not and until i saw the $4k shipping charge. my kid road races, i thought how cool it would be to surprise him with this.... i wonder if it would be cheaper if the seller was arranging shipping purchaser's house..... not that i am genuinely interested, i'm pretty sure i wouldn't be able to afford it!
