I hit the bike shop, but you normally have to pay out the ass for those. I got mine at Ace Powersports in Kenosha since they had three packs of 8 inch numbers for $5 a piece.

I like getting mine from a sign or decal shop. They die-cut your full number on one sheet so its easy to apply and all the numbers are straight, you can choose the spacing so it all fits right too. They can also add different colors and effects. Definitely the way to go if the numbers are going to be there for more than a weekend. I have a 3 digit number and had 3 sets done in basic black cost me 10 bucks

What I do is to get some mailing labels at the office supply store, print them one digit to a label, and use those. They're pretty cheap (and look it), and no worries about the shop not having the number you need when you need it. Downside: it can be a bastard trying to get the computer to print them up correctly.

Avery #15516 are the right size for this.
