Bad Dad’s Original Hide-a-Plate is a simple way to hide your bike’s license plate. This product features a rotational hinge for moving your bike’s plate and is available in both a manual and electronic version. Once deployed, the bottom of the license plate sits approximately 5 inches off the ground providing clearance for curbs, bumps, etc. Bad Dad’s Original Hide-a-Plate is available in any of Bad Dad’s stretched rear fenders. The plate frame is wired into your bagger’s switched power so it automatically illuminates your license plate whenever the bike is switched to the “on” position. The fully electronic version is also wired to the bike’s power switch and automatically extends the plate when the bike is turned on.

Batwing Ape Handlebars
Harley’s Batwing Apes are shaped to place your hands just above the stock Batwing fairing found on its Electra Glide-based motorcycles. The 12-inch-high handlebars feature a tall stance and minimal pullback. They’re finished in chrome or satin black, are 1 inch in diameter, and accept internal wiring. They fit ’09-later Electra Glide, Street Glide, and Trike models (except Electra Glide Ultra Limited and CVO models). All models require the separate purchase of additional components for installation, and do not fit with heated hand grips.

23-inch Wheel Installation Kit
This installation kit from Hill Country improves handling and looks when installing a 23-inch front wheel on ’97-later Harley Touring models.

Easy Shift Kit for Baggers
Pingel’s Easy Shift Kits for the ’87-11 Harley-Davidson FL models electronically suspends the ignition system while simultaneously shifting the transmission, allowing smooth gear shifts up or down at the push of a button. Clutch use is eliminated except for starting and stopping. The unit works for normal riding or full-throttle shifting and the ability to clutch and shift normally is retained. The unit enables touring riders to spend more time enjoying the ride instead of shifting. Each kit contains Pingel’s Slim Line dual-button handlebar bracket with polished finish, miniature solid-state control modules, a wiring harness, a chromed shift cylinder, a polished mounting bracket, and complete instructions.
430 Shocks for Kawasaki Vaquero
Contact for Pricing
The new Kawasaki Vaquero has already caught the eye of more than a few hardcore riders and customizers as well as the suspension go-to guys at Progressive. Renowned for its line of high-performance motorcycle shocks and fork spring kits, now they’ve given the stylish Vaquero the one thing it lacked—a lower stance. Not only does it sit an inch lower, it also utilizes a high-pressure gas mono tube design with deflective disk damping for high-performance ride control. Threaded preload adjusters allow for tool-less adjustment of ride quality and changing loads. Smooth lines and a polished chrome body complement machined aluminum spring perches. They are available in chrome or contrast-cut black anodized finish to match the look of your bike.
