collector plates

Post by gnarlyroad » Tue Feb 02, 2010 10:42 am

Anyone out there have collector plates on their ride. If so can you tell me how picky are they( insurance) about original paint schemes, decals etc.. Would really like to get these plates as the insurance rates are so good( read cheap). ;)

It's not so much insurance that's picky about them, as much as the state/province that issues the plate. Some don't care much at all, and as long as the bike is over a certain age, they'll issue a plate. Some have very strict restrictions on how and where you can ride it, how many miles a year, what kind of modifications can be done, and so on.

Here in WIS, the one time collector fee is $50.00 + ( twice the annual registration fee of $23.00 ) Issued for vehicles 20 years or older that have not been altered or modified from manufacturer's specifications. Must have another Wisconsin registered vehicle used for regular transportation. Cannot be operated during the month of January without a temporary plate.
So I just don't ride in January WX :lol:
