It will be very well made like all there parts, but yes a joke at that price.

And a bit over-styled IMO. I love the Joker stuff because of the quality -- I have used quite a bit of it in the past on custom HD builds. I don't have any JM parts on my Bonnie because of my preference for clean, simple styles. The only thing I'm considering at this point are the levers...

And I don't think the price point is far off considering what some of the vendors are getting for Monza's. Each to their own...

Interesting option! I went with the DIY ebay cap from the UK (and I'm very happy with it), however this looks like a cheaper alternative.

They even show it installed on a Thruxton:

I wonder, if the Bonneville came with a hinged cap from the factory, would there be an after market for retro screw caps?
