Where are you guys putting your license plate? Where did you find your bracket etc..

I'd like to mount it off the swing arm but I'm having a hard time finding the part.

Thanks

buywitchdoctor.com has some relatively inexpensive ones mostly made out of stainless steel. MBW also makes some really nice ones that are sold on victoryonly.com as well as on some other sites. There are several threads on here that list off numerous websites that sell aftermarket parts... do some more looking and you'll probably find a few more options.

There are probably 100 plate threads on here. Take some time to read the threads you'll be glad you did.;)

Did you look at the one on buywitchdoctors.com? $45 for black or stainless steel is probably the best value that you will find. Or if you're handy with working with metal you could probably DIY one for less.

I'm using the stock mount. I cut 2 in 2 spots and bent it back so it lay down, and checked the back piece that covered the wires

look on ebay under pineda's metal custom designs (or google). They have the straigt/slanted swingarm design as well as the curved ones that come with LP Bolt Lights. I paid like $85.00 plus shipping and got it in 3 days. Overall, I am satisfied with mine.

Try looking under the photo gallery towards the top of the page. Then scroll down to Victorys. I just pulled it up and they are there, tried to copy and paste link but it won't work:crzy::crzy:

There is a thread on here somwhere that was started awhile back that talks about cheap upgrades and I loaded some pics of modifyingthe stock one for more asthetic appeal like NJ8BALL. Cut the bottom off just below the turn signals, notch under the plate light and drill 2 holes. The only thing I must say is be careful when doing this I had to go in and support the bottom of the plate because when the fender went to paint the guy bent the plate and it started breaking after thousands of miles. I reenforced it with a couple of pieces of scrap metal and the only addition visually is the bolts in the bottom of the plate. Use your imagination--if it looks like you dont need it...Have fun!

Derek--on your rear lights did you mount them like that because they wouldn't bend? I was thinking of doing soemthing like this with flexible LED's for a tenth of the price of MBW rear's.:D
they bend, I just wanted a different look. This winter I'm thinking about taking that off and trimming it down to look like two fangs. I'm going to take the extra metal to the outside of each light off for sure and I may try to french the lights into the metal to look smoother.
