Sorry for the blurry picture. Snapped this photo while in Florida under low light conditions. Where can I purchase a license plate bracket like this?

I disagree. The laws of physics side with my disagreement. Sure, sure, the back side of it would get gunky but the plate would not. However, if the chain guard was actually on the bike, even the back side of the plate mount would remain (relatively) clean.

Looking harder at the picture, it looks like the whole bracket is billet and is connected in some way to the chain tensioner/adjuster.

After getting pulled over last night for not being able to see my plate installed under my tail, I am going to make my own like that for the ZX11.

Basically, I will use flat plate steel to make a "perimeter" that is just a tad smaller than the plate, and drill holes in it to help lighten it. I'll drill holes in it for the plate as well, and somehoe use round stock to attach it to the swingarm. Somehow I will need to attach it to the swingarm, though. Hmmmm....

The shop next door makes them for a local distributor. If you guys are interested I can get a GP started.

They are high quality 2 piece billet.

A guy at work has one like that but all chrome on his 03 GSXR 1000. He order it through a local motorcycle preformance shop.

He is not here today, I'll ask him how much he paid for his when I see him.

Just a heads up, I bought one on ebay, not that much I think it was $35, it broke in like a week. When you are on the freeway, the wind bends it in towards the wheel. It won't hit the wheel, but it will move inside the rim. I didn't like it and took it off. Just an FYI in case you are thinking of doing this. Here it is once I first put it on.

I would love to make one like that, but my rear axle doesn't use huge bolts on the end like that. I needed something quick, so I just made the normal one like everyone has, but I'd like something like those for my bike :cry
