VIN Breakdown...

I have the VIN, can someone break it down for me? I tried, couldn't do it with any confidence.


Much appreciated.

Mt VIN from a 72 Superglide is
2C33459H2. This is off the plastic card they gave me in April, 1972, my first Harley. Do they records go back that far? I'm pickin' up my 2012 FLSTC in 12 or 13 more days. My SG has been sold years ago.
