Cool Vertical Side Plate and sprocket nuts

Contrary to my wife, I can "tighten my belt". Over the winter, while I am socking away a few bucks every couple of weeks for that "high dollar part I just gotta have" for the Bobber... I ease my cravings about $30 at a time. It was relatively tolerable today (50 degrees F), so spent some time:



  • Adding sprocket nuts (Thanks AJ Cycles for the discount!). Not only do I think the anodized yellow really works, these nuts are a bit more substantial than the Triumph OEM ones they replaced. Cool, and functional.
  • Adding the vertical license plate mount. I dig the short, simple styling of the mount. It's a beefy metal, well done for about $20. Best of all, zero mods to make it work.

Looks great. I dig the nuts. Nice accent to that area. Prob looks interesting when the wheel is in motion as well.

I am in Va as well; is it legal to run the plate like that here?

It's a Bobber... and therefore, above the law. Everyone knows that, even police.

I asked 2 dealerships in Virginia if it was legal, both whole heartedly said yes, no problem in Virginia. I also asked If it would be a problem with me riding in
other States and they stated no problem

I'm in Northern Virginia too... so very doable. Would be nice to meet another Bobber owner. PM me. I know a place we can do cigars and beer indoors.

I am in MD, where it is not legal, and I've gotten mixed stories about how often one might get a ticket. Mostly not, but they can get you here if they want. Was also told by a long time rider that they will get you in DC more often. But seems to depend on luck...
