I was in a Harley shop yesterday and noticed every bike on the floor has a `3` in the 8th position in the VIN number. The current myth is if the 8th digit is a `3` or a `C` the California DMV will not issue a green sticker or license plate.
If this is true how can Harley's get plated in CA???
Does anyone have the inside line on the DMV rules in CA? I thought I was up to speed on current rules but this has me wondering what's up.
