Really great job with limited tools!Making it is simple. You should try it.
1. 2-12" X 12" pc of 1/16" aluminum
2. 6- 1 1/4" insulated pipe straps
3. 6- 1/4" x3/4" screws/washers/nuts
4. Paint and sticker or I used 3m reflective vinyl adhesive for the black background.
Cut out aluminum plate in a 10 1/4"X 10 1/4"X 7 3/4" triangle. I rounded the edges and cut a round notch where the frame slider could go. All done with a fine blade on a jig saw.
Mounting holes on the right side were all 1" in from the sides. Nice and uniform. Notice where I slipped the straps around the frame because the locations are the only places they fit without hitting something else on the bike.
Mounting holes on the left side are in different spot because the straps are in different locations than the right. I put the straps on and measured them up using their exact location on the frame.
Once I mounted up bare aluminum plates I pulled them off and finished mine with reflective tape and the rat bones sticker. You could paint or whatever to match the theme of your scrambler. If you use the adhesive be patient. I'm still pressing bubbles out from behind the tape.
Remount your finished plate and enjoy your personalized number plate.
I included pictures of my progress and you can see my strap locations.
I think in the pictures you can see I have two straps attached where the plate can swing back and forth so they were easy to tighten up. The last nut was not easy. I used a box end wrench and taped off the back of the wrench so the nut would fall out. It's a patience game on the last one but I got it within 10 minutes. Keep telling yourself it's only one per panel. You could try epoxying or jb welding the nut to the strap and then all you would need to do is line it up and not actually hold it. Let me know when you get it.Plumbermark - were you able to get a wrench behind the plate and insulated pipe straps to hold the nut for fastening? I am looking at my cut plates and the tight fit with the frame tubes and am not sure how this will work!
What happened? That's scary.That looks awesome. The army star works perfect with your urban enduro. I also like how you blacked out the silver on your exhaust. That's going to be my next project after repairing my rear blow out from last night. At least I didn't go down and get run over by the semi truck behind me. Sometimes it better to be lucky than good. Take care and keep posting your projects.
