Default 67 Harley DE

I have but a 67 Harley DE golf cart. Runs good but the batteries don't seem to last as long as my Club Car. They test out at 6.5 volts after charging, is 6.5 volts a good indicator of a proper charge? I have been thinking about selling it as I very rarely use it. Don't want to sell it if the batteries are bad.

6.5 is about right. Batteries lose their staying power over time. If your HD batteries are older than your CC ones then they won't last as long. As well, old carts use resistor banks for speed control whereas "newer" carts (90s and up) used electronic speed control. You may have noticed, but there is a lot of heat in the those resisters during use. That's wasted energy. Newer carts are simply more efficient. Things are probably about right in your case.
