Default License plate mounting bracket

Here is a pic of my bracket . Something isn't right. Leans back too much. Can someone post a pic or 2 of theirs so I can see how it is put together?
Thanks,
Roger

This is about the best pic I have and I think this was before I bent it forward a little more. The license plate bracket on the KP's were definitely an afterthought. There are much nicer lay down brackets available from Ness and Witchdoctors.

I tried to bend it up some but it is a tough bastard , and seems to be braced so it can't be bent very easily. I just wonder how mine got that way or was it replaced / repaired and installed wrong?
That is why I was looking to see what it is supposed to look like stock . Maybe as you said , a nice lay down plate would be the better way to go . Just gotta budget it out.

Here is what mine looked like before I removed it. It is definitely the ugliest thing on a Pin. I built a lay down bracket using a Radiantz frame. IMG_0216.jpg

Bat Man: That plate frame set up looks a lot like what Witchdoctors sells. Might be a variation of the same product. Sure as heck looks much better than the stock set up.

Just looking at this thread again and it hit me ......, what if it is put on the bike 180 degrees from the way it is supposed to be. That would explain the angle it has.

Only a couple of screws stand between you and the answer.

That wasn't it , but , I did figure it out . Someone had it apart at one time and didn't put it back together right. They didn't have the front bracket and rear bracket looked lined up and so they used their own bolts to hold it together , see the before and after pics.

Default New Kingpin owner

Hi Guys.
I Already have a Vegas in the UK and am buying an older 2004 Kingpin for use in Florida. Haven't see it in the flesh yet, but have lots of photos. The only thing I really dislike is the license plate bracket. Can anyone tell me if this can be completely removed and another (legally) put either on the lower part of the fender or to the side (or anywhere other than it sticking up behind the passenger seat?

One other thing.. will I notice a big difference in performance between my Vegas 106 and the Kingpin 92 motors?

Many thanks Guys.
