    I have never seen a factory photo of late 43 thru 45 machine with any but the grey ones. I believe the other colors were parts department replacements.

    I called Coker about tp on some new Super Eagle tires, and was told 30-32 psi. My new tires were super squirrely for about 300 miles, be careful.

    Back in the day, we were told to sell only H-D 75W for use in Shovels with hydraulic lifters, not 105W. I remember the four turns method being used all the time.
