8 inch fw hub cover vendor?
« on: 31.07. 2016 02:54 »
 Who sells a good stainless or chrome hubcap for the full width 8 inch front hub?

 I've talked to a couple of suppliers over here and both told me finding one that actually fits is the problem. Some are made so small you wreck them trying to put them on.

 Some are so big they rattle and eventually come off.

 Anyone have any luck finding correctly sized  hubcaps, and who is a good supplier?

 I dont know, never heard of a hub cap called a Nave Plate before. Must be an "over there" thing. *smile*

knave plate = hub cap according to Collins, but more for cars than bikes
