License Plate Relocation?

I am looking for a kit to relocate the license plate on my RGU from under the tour pack to below the rear light.

Any suggestions?

I did mine with a street glide light bar and a kuryican curved license plate. The streetglide light bar has the license plate light attachment. I then put on a rk lens to get rid of the white light on the top.

Oops. I guess I should have mentioned that I am in Germany and we do not have the standard American license plate size.

The one I have is a bit higher and a bit shorter then the normal American CAR license plate.

I need a kit that does not have a frame I guess.

I wanted to mount mine underneath the light also, but then I changed my mind. There are two red light enforcement cameras near my house. I have had to get used to them and paid two tickets in my truck before I got better about not "fudging" the yellow light. I was riding my RG home and it had been raining and I ran that red light instead of trying to stop on the wet pavement. I ran it bigger than Dallas. I never got a ticket in the mail and I believe it is because from the elevated angle of the red light camera, by plate is obscured from view by my luggage rack. Not that I plan on running red lights, but that is kind of a bonus.

I think the suggestions made would still work. All you would need is the German, bigger backing plate, and maybe drill new holes to attach it to the relocation bracket.

I got my QD tour pak installed last month and ended up going with the pre-'09 light bar from PcPain. Expensive, but it's very clean and looks fantastic. I just got new plates (move from HD to WI) and USAREUR now uses the huge German plates!!! Shoot me a PM for more info, pictures, part numbers, install questions or whatever. I feel your pain!!
I should have hit you up, I was in K-town last weekend.

I still have the regular car size USAREUR plate so I am ok. Had to bend in the sides a bit. I think as long as I don't lose the plate I should not have to go with the big German plate. Didn't they care at vehicle registration that the big German plate does not fit? I heard Wiesbaden is easier on Harleys then anywhere else.

I understand what BradinTX is saying. The current location of the plate has saved me from one ticket already. They got a photo of it but one letter was missing. Ticket came in the mail and was missing the last number so I told them that this is not my bike and never heard back from them. That was over four years ago so I think I got out of that one.
