    Number plate relocation Heritage Classic 2018

    Hi folks, I'm looking for some help/tips/info here please.

    I have a 2018 Heritage Classic 114. As anyone who has even just glanced at one of these, along with other models in the range, HD really f****d upthe license/number plate arrangement on them. With a standard UK plate it really messes with the lines on the bike, looks like a sail and I've caught it with my boot getting on and off a few times. Also it needs moving or the plate being made smaller to accommodate a rear rack. HD clearly didn't think this through for their export market.

    Ideally, the plate wants mounting at the bottom of the fender, below the rear tail light and indicator cluster. This would need a downward shining tail light lens (but where would I get one from?) but the stock indicator assembly is going to block the light

    Alternatively, I can buy a smaller "show" plate (ahem) and a laydown plate holder and leave it where it is but not sticking out like a one legged man in an arse kicking contest.

    You can get number plate bolts with led lights in them.
    This will light up the plate to legal requirements.
    Plenty on ebay.

    On some models with rear carriers or top boxes I've not been able to fit a regulation plate. So I've been sticking out like a one legged man in an arse kicking contest for many years.

    Then there's the guys with regulation size plates but they're black and silver.
