I want to put collector plates on my 1980 HD Shovelhead. The bike is stock except for a flame paint job, pipes and carb. The frame is not stretched. It is not raked. It has stock size tires. My question is how strict are the rules that it must not be altered from stock? Other than the old mild paint job it looks stock. I would not have questioned it but they require photos of the vehicle to be sent in with the application. I have regular tags on my 53 Buick, and my two other daily drivers. Any thoughts on collector vs hobbyist plates? Thanks for the input. And, has anyone had troubles when sending the title in? My concern is that it is a Virginia title. It is in my name, but I have lived in WI for over a year now. In the two other states I have lived in I have never had to send the title in to get it transferred.
