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?
When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid
