Now that I have stripped both to the bare frame, I have found that the 74 frame is in much better shape. As much as I would like to keep matching numbers, I believe I will go ahead and put the 72 drive train in the 74 frame.

On the 74 the ignition switch was mounted on an arm attached to the rear aircleaner plate. I don't have the 72 part, but my parts book doesn't show the arm on the plate. Where was the switch mounted on the 72's? A set of new k&n filters came with one of the bikes. I will probably use them initially but if the carbs need replaced I may go to a single carb setup. When people are using the k&n's are they elimnating the back aircleaner plate and mounting the ignition switch somewhere else?
