Doing a bit of Googling seems to throw up that the ebay ones ain't much cop - the Fuel Exhaust ones seem to have a better write up

Thanks Ardie.

I'm torn between doing more stuff to it over winter or putting a deposit down on an Indian Scout.  Don't have time for two bikes, so I'd have to sell the Vl.  But I've put a lot of time into getting this one how I want it so I'm conflicted.  

I'm going to have another look at the Scout at the bike show & mull it over

Thanks for the compliment

As you're probably aware, I decided to keep he VL for the time being & spent more time getting to how I wanted it to look.  So over winter I've had the wheels stripped, powder coated & re-laced with stainless spokes.  The diff unit has been wet sprayed in matt black, the fake swing-arm, fork legs & brake caliper powdered in gloss black.  I've fitted an auxiliary fuse box, a rev counter & a radiator grill.  I also cobbled together a headlight visor/grill which I wasn't sure about till I fitted it - exceeded my expectations.  So I reckon I'm just about done - but I've said that before

Those UK sized plates really are a bugbear when fitted on bikes.

We have 21cm x 13cm (new-bike legal size) or 17cm x 13cm (newish bike legal size) and they are both big enough to read and be photographed so the UK 'barn-door' size is bollox really.



I'm really liking that rear fender

The plate, not the rear guard.  The guard is just a piece of ally sheet bent to fit between the existing rails with a small upright return to attach the seat to.

Daft question, but how do you read a French plate, ie. what info is on it?? Just curious.

Beautiful work Dave! Love the "blacked-out" look of on the fender and cover.  I did the same to the wheels on my Dodge Avenger as soon as we bought it.
