Default show me your Cheese wedge.

I did this a while back thought I would share. winter time has me stoved up in the cabin so.

I did the 9mm casings in the wedge but ordered the center (USMC 1) from some guy I found thru this site.
Its kinda showing weather look and wear but I still like it. Oh my key is a 12G shotgun casing as well.

I installed an aftermarket keyless ignition (Digital Guard Dog brand) and this leaves a hole where the ignition/key mechanism is located since you remove this mechanism as part of the installation. Does anyone have a recommendation for what to put in this hole to improve the appearance? Thanks.

I also have the DGD (not in my photos) but I have matching wedges on both sides with the hole. Best bet if you want to cover the hole is to replace the wedge badge with a solid one.

I bought these Whitewall Choppers wedges from a forum member. I think he might have sold them because he couldn't get them to fit. It did take a heap of modifying both the wedges and the brackets, but I got 'er done. They stuck out way beyond the tank and the hole for the lock was much too small, so some milling was in order. I do love a challenge. That is not a flattering photo - they are black, not blue.

Those are nice RICZ.
In response to OkieHoss above, VicWrapz.com website is still going and I create overlays for cheese wedges in lots of 'standard' designs, plus I can modify them to include anything you can dream up (such as adding your bike's name or a Victory logo, etc) or even throw the book out completely and come up with an entirely new design just for you. Custom work costs extra of course but it's not outrageous. Standard prints in the color of your choice are $16 for one side, with or without with the key hole cutout, and $28 for a pair, ready for you to apply over your stock wedges.

Here's one of my stock designs called "deco" in a popular color combination.



And while I'm bragging here is a new design (below). It's my own original takeoff on a Victory logo that is available in 3" and 6" widths for $3 and $6 respectively (postage included in the continental US). These are not active on the website yet so you'll have to PM me to purchase but there are several other Victory stickers on my site that are in stock for immediate shipment at this link www.vicwrapz.com/vicstickz/. Thanks for looking and ride it till the wheels fall off!
