Not sure what you're seeing. Look at the primary cover, look at the chrome bottom of the front fender, it's an HD. Look at the narrow, rectangular bags, inside chrome 'protectors', it's an HD. Ditto for the bottom of the rear fender. You won't find a non-HD with that style of rear fender.

He is not talking about the bike going, but the one coming toward the camera.

Opps, my bad then. Yeah, the oncoming bike is a horizontally opposed machine, most likely exactly what he said, a Valk.

It may have bombed at the boxoffice, but it's a favorite movie of mine. Dennis Hopper as the Deacon of the Church of Eternal Growth, worshiping Saint Joe (Hazlewood) aboard a rusted out Valdez...
