Has anyone had any experience of number plate 'number and letter stickers' to go on a PR27?
I'm thinking 2.5" letters?

Bill I have never done anything with black and white numbers than stick them on that includes age related recovered and refurbished I did see that sometimes they give me some sort of 'get a number slip' but thats still in the fileI thought we are only allowed Proper plates and have to take our log books with us to get them made ?,
Or is that only when you get an age related number ?, In UK.
Yes your right as probably over 95% of Vincents left the factory with blank plates. Very few bikes were registered by the factory and most of those were pre 1940.What do our "back to factory spec" members think? My guess 1st choice is sign writing and second is stick on numbers I suppose arguably a blank number plate would be correct as they left the factory numberless my investigations after original numbers for my rebuilt bikes in Oxford Archives shows big firm A went in on Monday and big firm B went in on Wed etc so it was the dealers who added numbers. I cant really remember many pressed plates back in the day never underestimate what a lucrative trade sign writing was back in the fifties
they are legal it that I am not sure of the date but about August 1975 you could ride a bike without a front number plate it became none requirement item. I still ride two bikes with the old bacon slicers on but the main i took it off the speed camera thing?Both mine and ex-brothers Comets have pressed alloy plates with makers stamp HILLS in a rectangular border one of them has has both curved front plates. Mine was sold by Conways and the other was registered in Halifax.
Remember the front 'bacon slicer' plate is illegal in the UK.

I was bit unsure any way thank youWe are both partly right and partly wrong.
I though the regulation was retrospective, it wasn't. Just no longer a requirement for bikes registered from '75. But registered from 2001 they are illegal.
From DVLA site.
"Motorcycles and motor tricycles registered on or after 1 September 2001 must only display a number plate at the rear of the vehicle.
If you ride a motorbike or motor tricycle registered before 1 September 2001 you can also display a number plate at the front, but you don’t have to."
