We were talking about tall seats and sissybars this morning. This is the way my knuck looked when I bought it in late 68. It was a few years old then, so bikes with tall seats were being built in the mid 60's.
I rebuilt the bike and put a sissybar on it that was about a foot shorter, but I don't guess I've had a daily rider since then that didn't have a bar of some sort on it. I built one for my Pan that's just a little shorter than this.
I wish I could see the bike you posted but I'm getting the red x's like they're talking about on the HAMB. Never happened before, just the last couple of days.
