The numbers on post 1970 H-D's are Angler, almost like triangles and so forth, not like the pree 69 numbers at all.....

And the motor numbers should match the frame, H4 for 1974

.....Roach.

Yup, I just wanted to show that they are not stamped evenly, that they are tilted and crooked to one another.
