Just wanted to know what the bracket under the license plate was for?

That's pretty cool. I thought it would be a good place to mount a custom plaque or something. I was just wondering if it served some official function other than looking like something is missing.

You may reconsider after you see the price ....... it does look great though. Maybe we could get Ilium or Suburban to do something similar.

Does anyone have a cad file on that thing? If they do, I can get a bunch made.

Sounds like some one with access to a Cnc machine could have a good little business going. Of course it would have to be less than 200 bucks though.

I have access to a CNC, just need the file, and I can get a bunch of these done.

Not quite $ 200...but not far from it <g> I don't wear jewelry on my person, so I could rationalize this as WAY cheaper than my wife's jewelry and its just going on the bike instead. Also, that ugly hole/space under the license plate bugged me. On the plus side, its very nicely crafted - they take PayPal, and it arrived in just 4 days.

If these were $100, would a bunch of people want them?

100 bucks sound reasonable. I would recommend a choice of a couple other designs as well.

A friend of mine owns about 10 CNC machines. I am going to talk to him to see what he can do.

I "know a guy" with a few CNC machines...... :) I'll make one for mine and post a pic. A friend of mine runs an electro-polishing business too. ETA: for the prices people are talking about I could make them from stainless.

Sounds good. I was just going to order one from Japan, and then have my buddy duplicate it. He builds custom Cobras for a living.
