I have been looking for a curved, side mount license plate bracket for my nightrod special, preferably one without a brake light. The only one i have found is one from Kreater customs...which i was quoted at $680.00, yeah i did not mis-type, $680.00!!!
Any help would greatly be appreciated, pics, links, etc. would also be great. I have seen a few "universal" type ones on ebay, but would like to pick the knowledge base of the forum first. :notworth:
Thanks in advance,
Jamison

Kuryakyn makes a nice curved side mount that only needs a slight mod to work on our bikes. Its the one made for dynas It has built in LED lights. Comes with a bracket for a dyna that mounts to the frame that you wont need. Frame itself just needs to be drilled out slightly to fit the V shock bolt (7/8" drill bit same as you use to line up the front wheel). This is the best lookin sidemount that is reasonably priced. Goes for about $120 on ebay

I have this one, but it's WAAAAY too expensive. I didn't pay the retail cost because I had a deal with the shop. It's a great plate holder though and the LEDs are great

I dont think it does but you can strip the chrome and powdercoat it but now youre adding to the cost

I like that bracket - the way it moves the plate behind the belt and close to the rear tire.

Where did you get that from?

It is CNC cut out of a giant cube (hah) ... it's one flowing piece with curve matching the lines of the wheel/tire and belt pulley. It's very clean

I have this one on my 08 DX and it was cheap and looks great.. there are many other better things to spend top dollar on. I get many comments on its looks on the bike. i added a set of black LED plate light bolts. the plate looks great and was simple to install save money but still look great Fits perfect.

Hey MTNBKR, where did you get your web curved bracket from? This may be an option for me, it looks to be offset, which would bring it closer into the rim, link please if you have it.

Just curious. What did you do for lighting on that web bracket. Doesn't look like it has any. I know around here you need to have a lit plate.

Cops seem to be lenient about the horizontal plate as long as it is properly lit. No light is an automatic ticket. Not sure if it is like that everywhere though.
