Seriously? It's F#*^king unbelievable what you guys have to worry about over there. Thank God our forefathers ran the oppressors out of here with their tails between their legs before we became subjects too.

Tell your dirtbag politicians to f^ck off and move to the USA. We will welcome you with open arms. First beer's on me and you can use any kind of fender strut you want and nobody will ever say sh!t about it. Or no fender at all, for that matter.

The led indicator lights are E approved if that helps.

If they're E-marked (which they are) and good enough to get German TUV approval (which they do) they should sail through a UK MOT in terms of brightness and function. However I did see recently that there's now a minimum distance for motorcycle indicators. This is what the .Gov MOT site says:

Mandatory direction indicators must have minimum separation distances between the illuminating surfaces of:

solo motorcycles – 240mm at the front and 180mm at the rear
motorcycle combinations – 400mm at both front and rear
There is no requirement to measure the separation distance and they should only be rejected if the separation distance is obviously incorrect.

But I doubt these rules are enforced that strictly and I would think if they look bright enough you shouldn't have any issues but you pay's your money you take your chance. If I were you you I'd have a chat with my local MOT station before I pulled the trigger.

I do hope they say yes because the Wunderkind rear end is the neatest I seen, they look awesome and if you can live with a side plate go for it!

Oops, I've just measured the distance between the Bobber's rear fender struts and you'll be pleased to know it is roughly 180mm, so I far as I can see you shouldn't have any issues with the MOT.

But as it's an expensive purchase I'd still double check.
