While some people are not happy that the new set will include 8 stickers instead of printed parts for things like the speedometer and license plate (since there’s only 1 option), those who get the first run of sets may also get a sticker where the city of Milwaukee is spelled incorrectly.

While some collectors won’t care and some won’t even apply the stickers, there will be real Harley-Davidson enthusiasts and LEGO fans who are put off by this rather obvious mistake. Given that LEGO has partnered tightly with the motorcycle maker, it’s a bit of a surprising gaff.
It’s not the first mistake LEGO has made, and not even the first this year. When LEGO announced the Steamboat Willie set LEGO Ideas fans were quick to note that the Ideas set number was incorrectly identified as set #024 when it should have been #025. The #024 belongs to The Flintstones set released just prior.
German fans were also quick to note that the German license plate included in the Ford Mustang kit wasn’t correct for it’s home in Cologne. The included plate is K AM58IH where fans are saying it should be K-AM 581H, with an error in both the spacing and the use of an I instead of a 1.
