Chopper Axle Plates (Hardtail Axle Plates)

Hey everyone! I'm now selling axle plates! Get your axle plates for your chopper / hardtail project from me and help support the site. The axle plates are laser cut from 3/8" mild steel.

The axle plates come in three styles A, B, and C.

The fender/sissy-bar mounting tabs can be used with 5/16" bolts, drilled or tapped to 3/8" or 10mm, or cut off.

All three styles are available in 17mm, 20mm, 3/4" and 1". XS650s have 20mm rear axles.

Weld-on spacers plates are available to work with your original XS650 axle adjusters. The spacer plates are laser cut from 3/16" mild steel and once welded to the 3/8" axle plate will make the axle plates 9/16" wide around the axle slots.

Style A 20mm

I'll be ordering a few sets of these! I'd rather support this place and Travis than any other...

PS, when you have the next batch cut, you should add a small notch for the adjuster screw to seat in...

Sounds great! Let me know what you need.

I thought about adding the notch but decided against it on the basis that not everyone will use the stock adjusters, and if they did, it would be easy to add a notch with a grinder/cutoff wheel. On the other hand, if there is a high demand for plates with notches, I'll make some that way.

If any of you guys are wondering if the Axle spacer plates that Travis makes works on a TC Bros hardtail, wonder no longer. They fit almost perfectly! Travis's slot is only 1/16 inch longer than TC's and all of that will be covered up by the adjusters anyway. Great product, great idea!

LOOKS MUCH BETTER THAN WASHERS!
