Finding my old Harley

Greatings from CA....

I ran into an old folder that contained the sales recipt on a 1975 FXE that my Dad bought new. I have tried all the vin search engines on the web, but they all want a 17 diget number. Love to find the HD if I can.
Suggestions ??????

Got any old pix with perhaps a license plate showing? That could help the search considerably absent the other info.

One other thing you might try is call the DMV and see if they have records by name from X years ago. Could be they have a record of your Dad owning such and such a bike back in a particular year. Worth trying. Even if the bike left the state with a new owner, they should be able to say who where and when.
