Ran across a couple of pre 70 Sportsters that are kick only. Word is you can not convert to electric start but I struggle with that. I mean anything is possible eh?
I don't get the XLforum comment?apparently there is a guy on the XLF who can help do the opposite.
remove the starter hump from a humped case and allow older oval primary cover placement.
I'm in this boat...It would be sacrilegious now a days to wreck a good set of early cases.
