CA Veteran Series License Plate...

Hey Guys,

I ordered a vet series plate for my bike a few months ago and when I received it, I was sadly disappointed to find that it came with a decal that you had to install yourself AND that it was missing the VETERAN and stripes across the bottom like on the auto plates... So, I got a hold of a custom graphic decal maker and they hooked me up with a high quality decal that does what DMV forgot to do!

So, thought I'd provide this info for anyone who might be interested in "fixing" their California series VET plate. BTW, this could probably work on "non" vet plates too...

Vet Decal

By the way, this is not my company, nor do I work for it nor am I getting a commision (although I should, since it was my idea, haha)...

Yeah... I paid $40 extra for the plate. When I went to pick it up, it came with a little envelope with the Navy decal inside. I always thought it was "made" in the plate... Little did I know... Then, I was like, "where is the other decal?"

"Oh, I guess motorcycle plates don't come with that..."

Nice...

Just don't forget that in the great state of Komifornia, any change or addition to a State issued License plate is classified as counterfeit, forged, altered, or mutilated. Changes can be a Felony. (CVC 4463)

Well, when they finally catch me with my modified exhaust, removed emissions controls and altered license plate, hopefully they won't throw the book at me, but, you never know...

That's true.

Alternatively, this can also be affixed to the lower part of a license plate frame that can accommodate a 1/4" tall decal.
