Motorcycle Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic ASAP
Welcome to justanswer.
The build date should be stamped on the frame in the area at the rear of the tank.
I have had people searching already and they apparently can't find it, is there any way I can get in contact with Harley, they must have information???
Yes they will tell you. I can give you all the info on the VIN number, do you need the exact date ?
yes please, we live in Australia and are trying to get this bike from the states and need this information for customs etc
Can youtell me exactly what customs need ?
Ill give you all the info I can.
Does this help, if not Ill give you much as I can.
