Mid-year production models have 12 bolts per cover. These are the correct covers, gaskets, and heads, all with 6 bolts. This motorcycle is currently owned by the third owner. Originally sold as a PD bike, this 1955 Harley FLHF was then sold in the San Francisco area where it resided for over 30 years.
