the #numbers?

i've noticed many of you have nesba numbers on your bikes.
by numbers i mean like racing numbers on the front and tail
section of ones bike. how does one go about getting that?
so you know i'm not a nesba member yet, as i am a chicago
union plumber and recently laid off, so i have to watch my
spending right now. thanks brothers

Just a few bucks from DC Decals. They are a site sponsor.

Tape will do just fine. No need to put expensive #'s on your street ride if you are only going to rip them off 8 hours later.

Yeah, Stive rocks the fancy number 11. I always thought it was an added measure to keep his solo seat cover on! Two simple strips of tape.

You can also use whatever number you like. Duplicate numbers are allowed.

We usually have 3 blue and white gixxers with numbers 11 or 77.

Oh and 47 has been retired as I am in temporary retirement.

Just hit the DC decals forum on this site and Dean will hook you up with whatever you need.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

It doesn't matter what number you have. It's best not to have someone else's number in your class with the same color bike and leathers.

The number is so they can ID you when you pass them out of control so they can ream you a new one for being an asshat.

I just used blue painter's tape and white brush-on paint when I took my Busa to Road America. Worked like a champ, and peeled off when I got done.
