    Harley RL Early WL Horn Mount Question

    I have these two types of horn mounts for an RL / early WL.
    Notice that the one stye has an extra tab and hole for mounting something.
    Can anyone tell me what the purpose, years etc the one with the extra tab is for.
    Thanks in advance.

    VL in '36 had 4859-36A & 4860-36A that were almost the same as 45" '36-'39..same part # with added A as 45"

    The VL version are much shorter. These are the RL/WL version. Any idea on the extra hole in the one shown?

    It appears to be an electrical terminal on this Servi-car.
