Does anyone know of license plate bracket were the angle can be adjusted? I would like for it to come in a whole lot more unlike this example.
Didn't use Hotbody but I assume it would work for it as well. Just turn it around the otherway so it angles toward the frame/seat of the bike. That's what I did with mine

I think most people just bend their bracket or their plate. I know if you buy the cheap cycle gear ones, they are infinitely adjustable, but they look kinda fugly because they are made of a number of adjustable brackets. if you want something relatively cheap ($50 with a plate light), super clean and somewhat easy to bend (if that's your thing), check out TST industries fender eliminator. It can be found here:

Here's a couple pics of what it looks like on my bike with some kinda hidden LED turn signals



In this pic, you can see the turn signal under the rear right tail cover



Sry I take such giant images...

Came with the 2 Brothers and when I got it, the bracket was facing the rear at an angle of about 135 and the plate was directly under the base of the tail light. I flipped the bracket and now the plate is directly beneath the rear seat key hole and is at an angle of about 225. I like it more, much cleaner, easier to work with and look at

Made my own with a twist, thanks Sandman for the motivation.

Started off with this, didnt really like the color or bends in the bracket and no welder, lol.

Decided to use the stock plate bracket by grinding off one of the welded nuts with a dremel.

Drilled a hole to adjust spacing.

Not too pretty but it worked.

Reused grounded off nut, and here is the final result.

This may not work in Chicago. IL is fairly strict, as most states are to license plate placement. The angle, it appears, makes it difficult to read from a distance and may cause you to get cited if you met an officer in a bad mood. It looks like your plate is basically positioned where it's flat against the bottom. This is especially true for IL residents due to I-Pass and other tollways. You also have no light which means at night, that license plate is even more difficult to read. I'd change the angle...but that's just me. Here's the legal jargon:

- Every registration plate shall at all times be securely fastened in a horizontal position to the vehicle for which it is issued so as to prevent the plate from swinging and at a height of not less than 5 inches from the ground, measuring from the bottom of such plate, in a place and position to be clearly visible and shall be maintained in a condition to be clearly legible, free from any materials that would obstruct the visibility of the plate

- Each registration plate and the required letters and numerals thereon, except the year number for which issued, shall be of sufficient size to be plainly readable from a distance of 100 feet during daylight


-One white license plate light must be lighted whenever the headlight is on and must make the license plate visible from at least 50 feet away

PS, on a different forum for IL riders, many have stated they have either been warned or cited for this. A few got warned, didn't change it and got cited and changed it; others got warned and changed it while a few never got a warning but got a citation right away.
