I am not an authority to be sure, but almost certainly not. An 18S came with the iron engine and the CS came with the alloy engine. Damn little difference in the running gear, as you could get a CS with lights and generator, the difference was the engine, alloy mudguards and tank and comp magneto. However, as AMC started to go down, they put G50 engines into street bikes, so anything might have happened, just less likely as you go back to '54.

Here is my 67 TT Special in Time Square the day after the lock down started
I bet the sound from those pipes echoing off the buildings was pretty cool.
Even with a led bulb in my 72 Tr6 the brake light just didn’t have enuff brightness. Found some red truck led running lights, put reflective stuff on some aluminum and wired them in. This pic is just running lights, should help a bit without spoiling the looks...
