Side Mount License Plate
Funny how trying to do one little, itsy, bitsy, mod turns into a full orchestra production. I got a great deal on a side mount license plate bracket with light, but its for a Harley (yes I know, the H-word) and I needed a way to mount it to my axle. Mean Cycles makes a nut/bushing combo that they are very proud of because it's priced at twice what I paid for the whole license plate bracket. Anyways it seems to work with just a bit of alteration.
Here is my question to anyone else who has done this mod and used the Mean Cycle nut/bushing. The old nut was a castle nut, ie had a cotter pin through it so it won't come off. The Mean Cycle nut doesn't have that capability (nor should it as it would ruin the looks) so should I use a medium strength thread lock? What have others done?
Thanks in advance for the help.
