Hey Chris i really like the RMD products but the S.O. would kick my a$$ if i spent that much.
At most i might be able to spend $120..any ideas?

Something like this should keep you within budget:



:D :D :D :D


Shawn, I am totally kidding, I just couldn't resist the opportunity to be a smart-ass... my wife would beat my ass if I spent that much on something to hold my license plate... hell, the sticker on it is not even current, but that's another story for another time. ;)

why wouldn't this work?
Is there that big of a difference in the Fatboys,FxST's ..etc. over the v-rod?
i wonder if it would work with a little modification?
has'nt anyone tried it yet?

Joe i would almost try that, it does'nt have to be snazzy....just work.
just as long as i could remove that doga$$.

RMDBillet sidemount...

Does anyone have the RMD Billet sidemount and if so, do you have any recommendations on how to hide the wiring for the light??? I am thinking about ordering it, but the last thing I want is wiring showing on the bike...i like to keep it as clean as possible!

The RMD Billet sidemount plate is a beautiful piece and you will not be disappointed. I mounted mine and ran the wire in my axle cover down under the swing arm and up under the seat. Really nice! You will have to lower the bike to make it look right. I cut my rear shocks 1" inch, which lowers the bike about 1 3/4" inchs. If you are really interested, I will send pictures.

Vrodtom....please post pictures. I am about to wire up my sidemount plate and am looking for ideas. Thanks, John
I drilled a hole in my axle cover and ran the wire into it and down under the swing arm and up under the seat. I will take a few pictures on sunday and post.

I also have the RMD Billet. Well worth the price. Very high quality. I also like Harleyvrodguy's sidemount. I can't remember how much he spent. I am old, therefore I have no memory.
