The Prototype work started with the inprovements to SS/SX 250 engines.
Harley Engineer Jack Krizman found all kinds of performance improvements to the 175cc and 250cc engines. Including fifth port and reed valves head and pipe Designs. The Harley Engineers tried all kinds of things with different shock designs, Disk Brakes and clutch, crank, cylinder/heads, ignition systems, frames and so on. The 1975 prototype was the begining of things to come.
