Snooping around on the streamliner . . .



 Hmmmm?  Long reach plugs. 
Heads plumbed for external oil drain lines.
 1C10506H0 means 1970XR cases I think?
I've noticed many of the actual H-D Race Team engines have serial
numbers that start with "5" (or have a 5 in there somewhere)
 
I don't believe this is the original motor that went the distance . . . but it's got some rare parts, cases, heads, carb, etc . . .  I looked in and saw the seat where Cal sat . . . and the handlebars that come apart with one bolt to help you get in . . . just like On Any Sunday.  My whole $9.00 admission charge(regularly $10.00, but I used my AMA card to get a $1 discount) was spent looking at this thing.  The pipes were falling off . . .

The yellow streamliner in the background was the Bob George/Easyrider machine originally. Powered by "monster" shovelheads. I did a story about Bob for Greasy Kulture mag sometime ago. He used to drag race a nasty knucklehead then when the Shovelhead motor came out in '66 he put their heads on a late fifties Panhead pair of lower ends. He was a hell of a machinist and speedy racer. As a side note The black motorcycle builder who built the original Easyrider bikes did the heads for Bob.
