    Re: 1936 Engine

    Has anyone seen an early Knucklehead frame that wasn't flattened on the bottom from riding them like they did before they were worth gold?

    I was asking about the frame being fake. I get the sentence structure. My wife yells at me in slovensky and Hungarian. Her english makes people think she’s mad.

    Here is my repaired 1936 EL Neck. The speedometer mount has been replaced. Notice the hallmark in the web. This is the first design '36 with the smaller lower reinforcement tube. Later in the year they enlarged the tube which required and new neck. The 2nd design neck has a smaller hallmark with a number 2 near it.

    anyway

    lower reinforcement tube
    looks to be 1” instead 7/8”

    also on rear trany cross plate you have reinforcement
    on right side
    not present on 36 frame

    Technically he is right - it is a real Harley frame but it is not a real 1936 frame. Jerry
