    The model year generally ended in July, the new models for the next year began in September. August was a transition month where the assembly line was switched over and next years model production began. A few years had a bit of overlap at the end in very high demand, high production years, but those were rare. Late '46 would be around April to July, but there is no specific date and many changes were running changes so all features did not change at once.

    Production ended in August 46, so I suppose June, July, August would be late.

    1946 is a moving target at best. The early bikes where plane Jane's with the MoCo dolling them up as materials became available to them again after the war. An early one may have no chrome and the last one off the line probably had a bunch. Don't make yourself too crazy about it, take it as a pass to modify the bike to your tastes.
