Title: Pass the plates please!
Post by: Mikku on March 21, 2018, 11:36 AM
I’m running with a different number plate this year. The Crupi came with a Box plate, which fits perfectly with the Box Maximus bars. Chuffed to bits with the bike, I decided to get a fancy-looking, custom-made graphic from Danger UK, which had the logos for all the bike parts, as well as my name, number and a Union Jack, as seen below. However, my on-track performances haven’t been so flashy and it may sound a bit stupid but I felt a bit of a fraud with that plate! So with a new race number for 2018, I decided to change things up this season and go for something more low-key and better-matched to my riding. Although the Box plate is cool, I also fancied something a little older and initially picked up a NOS Lizard Skins plate, as pictured. However, I then saw a used but cool-as-fook UGP plate which I couldn’t pass up, particularly as a colleague was visiting his folks in the States and could bring it back for me in his suitcase! Pics of how it looked when I got it are below, but it doesn’t look like that now! Part 2 to follow!! :daumenhoch:

So with the plate decided, the next thing I wanted to do was sticker-bomb the back of it. I’d seen a few sticker-bombed things I’ve really liked and thought that would add to the less-flashy look I was after. I had a trial run on the back of the Box plate, using up old BMX Museum stickers that I’d picked up over the years. Then it was time for the UGP. Again, I used some Museum stickers plus some others including parts of the ones salvaged from the front of the plate and of course, some Union Jack action to keep the flag flying over this side of the world. The result is below. :daumenhoch:

Got a new number this year, so decided to bust out the Lizard Skins plate! The question is, do I sticker-bomb this one as well??

I wont give you any bad tips, nor should I go take a photo of some stirring that happened a while ago,
But running Roman Numerals as a number was a good giggle.
Commentators got confused (couldn't figure it out quick enough),
Gate Check person had to get an interpretor  ;D
Chief Commisaire just looked and went "you made that to comply with the rulebook yeah?" and shrugged it off.

Thats just a start to the trouble making.

Time to update this thread with some plate action! :D

First off, I bought a cool Knucklebone plate which I'm going to keep in the wings for next year. it came with some Pryme numbers, so I naturally had to sticker my current Pryme plate with a couple of those (cannibalising a 4 to make a 1) to replace the makeshift ones on there. Pics below! :daumenhoch:
