Ride Nice

Mini axle covers

It looks like innovative Californian parts designer Ride Nice has hit another home run with these “uber” discreet new axle covers. 

Challenged by the hidden complexity of improving on a part as apparently simple as an axle cover, “making small” while still having enough material for the threads of two set screws to attach securely to the axle nut, without letting the screw heads show, took some doing.
However, the result is this unique, super-small design, which will fit any 2008 and up Harley, including Trikes and bikes with their own stand-alone front end, like the Sportster 48 and Breakout.
In more “Nice” news, owner Jon Reed has had his patent application on a new motorcycle ABS sensor cover design approved.
“This is an important milestone for us,” Jon says. “The ability to have protection on one of our designs will help fuel our goal of bringing high quality, unique parts to the V-twin industry for years to come. We have submitted additional patent applications and look forward to sharing news on them soon.”
