Just finished making my plate bracket. Bought it off of e-bay did some cutting and moved the mounting point. Rewelded, tapped and threaded the axle. Welded a nut on back side of bracket to fit inside axle so it won't turn. It took me about 3 hrs. $14 for bracket and a body shop I work at to mix up paint.

With a wife and 3 kids ages 10, 7 & 6 it would be hard to try and produce a bunch. Plus the guy that mixes paint said it was no easy chore to match the blue at least. If I was to buy paint from color rite website then I'd have just as much money into it as buying one. I like to play around in spare time witch really isn't alot. But if anyone is interested I can sure give you info to do it yourself. It was easy atleast for me.

VBaller:
From the looks of it he used threaded rod all the way thru the rear axle.
Any home depot has threaded rod, just need the right nut's for each end..

You can always go the other way and keep it in close to the hub. Like the one below.

There is no threaded rod. I bought a stainless 3/4 diameter bolt and ran a tap into the rear axle. So now I have a bolt and threads to tighten. Then obtained a nut that fit inside the axle itself cuz its hexed, drilled it out and then welded to the back of plate mount so it would turn on me. Its not gona fall out. A little time and thought thats all. I could have mounted either way. Vertical or horizontal, my way I thought looked more old school. To each his own.
