            Robbie, you know more about this model of motorcycle than I ever could; so, I am not disputing your answer. It is interesting, however, that most advertising I found showing these bags show a '55 or earlier KH. This includes the original folded 1956 brochure I have that Harley dealers gave to prospective customers. Maybe it was just too much trouble to photograph the 1956 model when there were plenty of '55 photos and artist's renditions lying around.
