Hi,

Has anyone seen a mount anywhere that enables you to hide the reg plate under the fender?
That would be a very cool mod for any shows/events where once parked up for display you can simply flick a switch and the plate would slide under the fender, out of sight.

I know that some bikers use something similar (flip-up plates) to get away from cameras etc so I reckon this idea might have legal implications. If not, grand.

Pretty sure those are illegal but unless you draw attention to it by using on the road then nobody would know it was there

Gray area then.

Possible overkill then as it would be easier to remove side mount instead while on show or something.

Yeah I have seen them loads of times over the years. A lot of them I have seen are setup with a small motor and a load of hassle. Not sure why anyone would want to spin a plate out of site for any reason other than to go through speed cameras at high speed or to get away from the old bill

Nice little novelty for shows Marcin but I agree with Crash it would be a lot of hassle for very occasional use.  Although it could come in very handy for when your in a rush. Twisted Evil


A mate of mine who is a bit of a naughty boy (allegedly)   has a spare plate that he copied from an identical bike from a showroom. When he is out for a long distance trips he pop's that one on, very naughty but very effective.

Agree...that could well be a mod that's last on the list.

As for the practicality...hell, who cares..how many things people do to bikes just for show, not practicality.  Wink

There was a video on here somewhere? showing a reg plate with a motor fitted to it, The reg plate sort of swung out then underneath the rear fender out of site, a little slow for speed camera's, I think it was along the lines of what your looking at.

just a bit to much work for very little effect, still all mods are good mods if the owner likes it.
be very interested to see it if you do it
