This is the tail tidy I built for my classic (shown in the pics). It's 6061-T6 aluminum with stainless HW. All built in house.

To install it I cut off the existing support framing just rear of the bracket holding up the fender and used s custom jig I built to drill the three mounting holes in the fender.

I'm thinking of raising the plate up even higher (but not the fin bracket - I like that where it is). I was concerned about blocking the tail light and I liked following the lines of the fender. But there's room to swivel it up more and that would further show off the rear clearance.

We'll see, that's certainly an easy enough change.

I also know how I can incorporate the existing license plate light, but I may not bother.

Well done.
I hope that you don't do much off road, fearing that the added weight and vibration could eventually damage your tail.
It's pretty robust because the fin bracket overlaps with the underside existing mounting bracket, which is by design. I think I'd need to get air (and a good amount of it) before I'm risking the rear fender.

Then I think you should patent your work and sell some online.. I'm sure a few classic owners would be interested. Unless you want yours to be a unique custom job.

Cheers!

Today I did what I think will be the most significant off-roading I will EVER do willingly on a Scrambler, and the tidy (and fender) held up fine.

Sorry, I was talking of the plate light, not the tail light.
In your case, there's no more light on the plate, as far as I can see.

In France, we would be fined for this.
Ah! Got it. I can mount the existing light on the tidy frame but I haven't because it's not required here.

Nice work boys.

Peter, I diffinitely think you have a market, albeit small, for those classic owners wanting something that fits the look and is as well finished as yours is.
