Shawn,

From your pic that is an early 125 motor (the "S" model), also that is a spring frame.

The serial number is a little high for any year. and that body was not offered in 66 nor did they ever publish info suggesting a 125 spring frame bike was built.

Some Harley mechanic probably built it from stuff high on the back shelf.

just a guess. Doug

I believe it is a spring frame. I thought I read somewhere that there was an economy or plain version that maybe came with a 125. But the year still doesnt add up?

Nice You got a new bike.

I wonder at whether someone put a case intended to rebuild a failed (125) motor and keep the same serial #, then stamped it with a made up #. Is it a spring frame?

Maybe you could post pics.

Just recently bought a 1966 Harley Scat. After further investigation I cant find anything that says they were made after 1965. This bike also is a 125 and not a 165 which seems to be not right. The documentation seems legite so what gives? Oh ya the serial number is 66s18362.Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks
Shawn
