    My '79 sportster Ironhead was one of 5,199 built 1-9-79 thru2-7-79.
    44,707 were manufactured,But..from jan.9 thru feb.7 the vin# was not on the engine block.an engine block# was stamped on the block,deciphering the code was a long drawn out process,there's still a discrepency,I can't figure out what the center three digits refer too?
    Any help?
    the bike is customized w/fat tank and plenty chrome/sweet paint/drag pipes/forward controls and s&s carb.
    I'm a few over 200lbs,and this scoot screams...
    Check out my pics...
    Curious to know how many still exist out there?
