I found this plate at a flea market for $5 when I was on holidays in America. Does anyone know how I can stop the paint from flaking off?

Wow!
That's a nice one, Shawn.
I had been trying to find a 1918 bicycle plate for the Harley, and didn't have much luck.
The early plates from the teens are pretty scarce.
I did find this 1918 from the Territory of Hawaii, which I was pretty excited about, but I don't know how many Harley Davidson Motorcykes you're expected to find rolling the roads of Hawaii in 1918. Lol!

You would probably be surprised! Yea I lucked out when Buck offered this one. My Flying Merkel was found in PA so this worked great! V/r Shawn

I've always been under the impression, that 1935 was the first year for the Los Angeles Bicycle License.
I've seen quite a few 35 issue plates, but I've never seen a 34 issue.
So, when I came across this picture, I was surprised to see those 34 issue LABL plates.

They are a larger format than the typical Los Angeles plate from the period.
Have any of you plate collectors ever come across a 1934 issue Los Angeles Bicycle License?
If so, and you're thinking about getting rid of it, give me a ring.
I'm interested!

I was searching for a bicycle license thread to show off my Elyria, and i couldn't find one. So i thought I would kick it off.

Anyone know how to tell the year of these? I take no credit for the fingers in the before picture :cool:

I would have to say 1920's or 30's. I've seen some of these at the swap meets and some may be dated on the back side. check yours out and let me know what you find. Good Luck!!

The only thing, I could gather, was that the Cycle Trades of America used to host an annual Bicycle Day, with festivities held around the Country.
My guess is, that this unveiling of the 1934 Los Angeles bicycle license was part of one of these Bicycle Day celebrations.
It was probably much like our present day, Ride to Work activities.

But, the big question is,
Has anybody actually ever seen a 1934 Los Angeles Bicycle License?
