At, we are involved in testing guns and related products. Motorcycle accessories are not usually the subject of an article for us, but this product may be of interest to some of our readers. Ron Schaerer is the owner of Innovative Motorcycle Accessories in Richardson, Texas, and recently sent to me some of his bolts and bolt covers that are made from Starline .44 magnum cartridge cases. While they may be put to several uses, the bolts are perfect to hold a license plate to a frame, whether on a motorcycle or another type of vehicle. The bolt head covers can also be used for other purposes, such as imbedding into a wood stock or grip panel. Either product is available in brass or nickel plated. The bolts are stainless, and the quality of manufacture is excellent.

I used the .44 Magnum nickel plated bolts to fasten the license plate to my Harley Road Glide, and they add a nice touch to the styling of the bike.

Innovative Motorcycle Accessories' .44 Magnum bolt head covers look right at home on the author's Harley-Davidson Road Glide. Aside from the obvious styling touch, these bolt covers are a natural for folks like Jeff who love riding motorcycles as well as shooting. After all, the two activities share a common bond...freedom!
