Home made plate mount

Went to Tractor Supply and picked up some aluminum diamond plate got a couple LED plate bolts from Advanced Auto and had some all thread already . Turned out ok for a couple hours of work . Made a template out of paper to make sure it was the right size . Used a die grinder to cut out the plate mount and fabbed up a couple brackets for the lights to fit under the fender . Left the stock break light , kinda lights up the rear tire a lil to show it off . LOL . Thinking about replacing it with an LED to light it up a lil more .

Nice solution, I would have gone with something other than the diamond plate, but I like the mount itself. I recently had to make one myself because mine snapped while riding.

Looks good man. Is the pin striping on the rear fender reflective or just standing out in the flash?

Nice craftmanship. From a design point of view I think if your going to use that type of metal on the Fury you need to incorporate it through out the bike on other areas. Like maybe a custom paint job with that pattern in it, or, fabricate some other parts using that same material. I think I saw some grips with that pattern that would help tie everything together. Just my opinion.

Mods- Smiley's Custom Chrome Timming and Crank Case Covers, Mini Bullitt front LED turn sigs, rear LED turn/break light, Deamon Cycle Mirrors, Reaper Front Fender, Irate Mesh Grille, Road Burner Exhaust, T-mod, Shock-mod, Shayne's side LP, L&M seat, Wheels Bikes2NV, Polished Roters, Chrome Calipers, Fork Spikes, Joe Florida Blue LEDs, Kuryakyn Grips...

smiley is on to something, there. imo, paint it to match the base color of the bike.
very creative solution. Looks far sturdier than some of the other solutions. also, I like Schmud's solution, too.
clean and simple.

That is cool!
Let me know if your going to start making these things. I'll take one.
What are you going to do about lighting the License plate up at night?


Sorry about the disjointed ramble, just got out and on some Meds.
