    Has the WL lettering been touched up on the "square" plate? Also, I don't really like the "flat" appearance of the wear/aging... to me this suggest that, if genuine, it would have been cleaned at some point and with this in mind I don't see how the stamps could have held up as well as, especially, on that rectangular license plate. Maybe they are genuine plates with some touch ups and added stamps?

    I don't know much about these per se but those are my observations re. wear and aging anyway... if genuine they'd be a nice looking pair though!

    Hi Lars, I think they are OK. When you enlarge the pics, you can even see where the washers once sat in the corrosion around the fixing holes. I cannot imagine that level of fakery being put in place.

    But I can see where Slados is coming from. At first glance they do look a bit "flat".

    Cheers, Ade.

    Personally i think they are OK. There is no color in the chippings etc. Maybe touched up but hard to tell.

    Btw the Zündapp K800 i bought will soon be in Moscow

    Lars,

    Are you allowed to register the bike for the road using those numbers? I'm in the process of getting my R12 registered in the UK and would like to obtain a WH number from the UK Licencing Officials.

    Regards

    It's being imported as a "cultural valuable object" and not for the road. It's because of tax issues. You can use the plates together with the modern one. I don't think the plates will fit into the Russian of British register. Don't know how it works in the UK I could use a good R12 myself LOL

    Regards, Lars
