Kind of reminds me of the finish on my 81 FXS Lowrider. The black wrinkle on the side covers looks very similar,  just not as much texture.



Good deal!
The brackets were dipped which likely accounts for the finish you see.

The ACC on the front tag bracket was on later production. Mostly all front tag brackets have a "C" stamping on either side of the lower mounting tabs, where it bolts to the valance. The same goes for the rear tag holders. The earlier holders have the 608 part number towards the center and the later has it up higher with the ACC stamping also.

What is considered later production?

Hey Dave, like Mike says what is considered late? Did you ever get my PM saying I found a set of spark plug wire shields? Just wanted to make sure your still not looking for them.

I agree - how late is late ? My 01C X77's original bracket is AAc - so is the one I bought in the 80's -

Interesting thread.   Had no idea so dug out my old license plate bracket.   Had it not been for some the posts, I would not have found the "AAC" stamp.   Lightly glass beaded the area is supposed to be and sure enough, there it is.  Small, thin font style, so pretty sure it's orginal.   I'll post pic's later.   '69  04C Van Nuys Build.
