Model / engine numbers

I bought a '74 Sportster. The title doesn't say what model it is and when the insurance agent put the info into the computer, there was no way to get the model from the VIN. Their computer had a feww generic models list, then Harley 1, Harley 2. etc

I have a Clymer's manual, but it doesn't show how to get the model from the VIN either, or how to decode the engine number.

Is there someplace to find this info online?

Thanks.
