Fold Away?

So I put on my new Undertail/tail (old one got cracked by a Stratoliner that rear-ended me) and got rid of the stupid plastic license mount for this:
(soon it will be fully motorized ... until then it is spring loaded)

Classy I know ... but in my opinion it is still better than stock. Plus this is only the first in, what I'm sure will be a very nice evolution of fold-away license plates I will make for this.

Hide the plate but show the parking sticker permit number


Don't get caught with that. Just saying


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Why do you need that if you have a big Hawkeyes sticker covering the plate anyway?

Nice job, looks nice and clean. I plan to do something similar on the street-tard I'm putting together.

Now put on you flame suit and prepare to get a lecture. I can't believe it hasn't happened already. Take it to the track!!!

Not quite yet ... it will probably end up attached to my "pass-switch" which will still operate the lights ... should be pretty pimp.

I don't ride hard at all on the street, I just like gadgets. And I don't have money or knowledge to do any other really cool mods so I'm doing w/e I'm able to play with on my own. If I end up making the motorized switch assembly - I'll put up a build up and stuff incase you wanna do sumtin similar on your street-tard.

I like. I need to make a new plate holder since my last plastic one cracked off when I accidentally swung my rear end into my garage support and the intermittent one was out of Ti plate... just the only thing I had around. How does it lock into place in both positions?

The street isn't a personal track????? I'm doing it wrong?!?!?!?

Nice install but I'd get rid of the permit LOL!

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

Currently the hinge is a cabinet hinge which is spring loaded in both directions. However more force is exerted currently to sustain the license plate in the 'legal' position.
