    Three of them are related to body modification, which are now fixed because I restored bobber back to stock.

    Fifth is about a leak in the front fork,I was going to post about this.

    I could barely see any leak, maybe it's this oil stain and not a leak? It's been there for a while and the stain has not become any bigger.


    My plan was to just wipe it clean. Will that work?
    Don't won't to spend anymore on fixing this bike.

    If there's no fluid leaking out anywhere then just clean it.

    It was obviously leaking at some point, but it might be that the previous owner replaced the fork seal but didn't clean the stain off.

    Drain the oil out for the inspection... Can't leak oil if there's none in it.

    If it is actually leaking a little see if you can lift off the dust seal and clean inside. It will take longer for the oil to reappear.

    Did something similar when I was pulled over on my old CB750F for too much smoke, went home and filled it ~90% with Wynn's Stop Smoke
    Took it back and when the guy was revving the tits off it he said "Oh there is a little bit of smoke but not too bad" and asked if I'd ever heard of Wynn's Stop Smoke to which I played dumb and said no He said just put some of that in it when I get home and removed the sticker
    Was a bit sluggish to rev up with that much in but got passed so a win

    Take your bike to the tip and cast it in then join it.
    In a Land Rover your car is the crumple zone.

    One thing I remembered -the controversial 45 degree license plate requirement

    Right now after putting the rear mudguard, tail light and turn lights it looks like this :



    After getting the license plate I will mount it at 45degree.
    But does the DOT require the black mudguard flap attached behind the license plate ? Is that a firm requirement ?
    Or will it be a safe bet to just install a makeshift DIY flap ( as mentioned by one of the poster earlier ) ?

    I did some image search of stock older Honda rebels , some of them did not have that black mud flap

    The plate does not need to be at 45 degrees, in fact if you put it at 45 it's probably considered as obscuring the plate.

    45 degrees refers to the amount of coverage you rear wheel needs from the axle of the rear wheel.

    So from your axle on the rear wheel 45 degree up your rear guard needs to go to (or past) this point. like in the pic below the guard needs to reach the wooden angle propped up against the wheel.

    It doesn't really how you do it - get creative with bits of plastic and zip ties if you have to.

    However, there must be somewhere to mount the licence plate, and there must be a light over the licence plate.
