Finally riding a big boys bike
Does anyone have the exact length of 63 q bolts?
They are 1 1/2" long from tip to tip. 63 was longest for the non crimped sissy bar and they are shouldered to pass through the bar and seat, then threaded.

There are two more lengths as well, for 64 crimped square back sissy bar, then the shortest for the more typical hooped sissy bars from 65 on up

Do you know how long the shoulder is on the 1 1/2" bolt?

All my early Q bolts (63 - early ‘64) measure at 1-5/8’’ from top of head to end of threads.
The smooth shoulder measures 3/4‘’ from top of head to start of thread.

There were two styles of fonts on the Q, most of the ’63 models had the small Q. Then late ‘63 and into the first months of ‘64 they used the large Q on these long bolts used with the non-crimp struts.

My H3 came with the small Q and my L3 came with the larger Q, which was used for the rest of the Stingray Series to ‘73.

The correct rear reflector for the ‘63 and ‘64 J38 Standard is the Stimsonite (2 pie) that measures 1-3/4’’.
My Red ‘63 and Lime ‘63 are shown below with their small 2 pie.

The larger Stimsonite (2 pie) at 3-1/4’’ would have come on the Deluxe models in ‘63-‘64.

Starting in 1965, all Standard and Deluxe models came with the Large reflector.

The Stratolite (6 pie) would be on the later Stingrays / Krates.
