Re: 1931 Victoria leather Back Top Installation

Mike, when I was president of the Victoria Association, I was asked about this a few times. I had a steelback but I was able to gather some information from members who had done it. I'm pretty sure I...

It's been a while since, but I seem to recall that it comes apart with some gentle prying between the shells. There aren't any screws holding the two pieces together.

Re: Rear Bumper Brackets for Victoria

If you type the words Victoria bumper brackets into the search function here you’re going to find a lot of info about the arms & brackets. And they are unique to the 190A and perhaps the Taxi.

Re: Mounting a second Rear drum light

Do a search for "Does this extra light make my rear look...?"
