Where did you get the registration plate bracket?  What's ugly to some may be eye candy to others ;)

Maz, Sorry, I've edited this post, I'm now using the reg plate mount as It was too difficult trying an alternative mounting any where at the rear of the bike!! (The extenable mudguard is locked in place with this fitment)

Ahh, the good old days of Driffield P.S.  I don't think my missus would let me put my new baby in the kitchen when it arrives next week !!!! 


You quoted the differences between the job and new RT, let's see how it compares to a 28 year old LT shall we?  :) )
