I've searched lots of pictures but don't seem to find one that shows the plate mounted but I know where to find the answer-right here. Thanks, Tom

Tom, Which model Spyder? Different for 550/550A and RSK/RS60/61.

Tom,


Alan is of course correct, also on the 550 there was also a Wendler chassis tag in the trunk in the front passenger side near where the fuel tank straps attach and a welded tag with the chassis number on the passenger side torsion bar support.
