  • License plates

    Any suggestions for license plate holders, both front and rear? I'm not too interested in drilling any more holes than I have to. The front won't be on for long naturally but I reckon I've got to be able to put one there, even if it's only now and then.

    Ultimately I'd like something easily removeable for track days.

    Front License Plate

    Although required by law in CA I don't think I have seen a Seven here with front license plate. If I look around in our company parking lot there are anyway 50% of the cars with a front plate at best. It is just not being enforced. A few weeks ago I went for a mountain drive with some other guys and one of us got caught speeding. The officer was in good mood, waived the speeding ticket and gave him a $10 ticket for the missing front license plate as a "reminder" :wink:

      Front plate.

      I've been thinking about creating a sticker replica of the front plate and attach it to the front/top end of my left cycle wing, or maybe just below the Caterham badge on the nose cone.

      However, my fellow citizens total lack of respect for the license plate displayment law has dragged me down into a state of total coma when it comes to this project.

        Hi Magnus,
        I dont think the sticker would help you. Here are the rules and they don't talk about facsimiles:
        The California Vehicle Code (CVC) requires that all vehicles registered in the State of California have a front license plate.

        5200 CVC - When two license plates are issued by the DMV for a vehicle, they shall be attached to the vehicle for which they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.
        5201 CVC - License plates shall at all times be securely fastened to the vehicle for which they are issued so as to prevent the plates from swinging and shall be mounted in a position to be clearly visible, and shall be maintained in a condition so as to be clearly legible. The front license plate shall be mounted not more than 60 inches from the ground.
        5201 (e) CVC - No covering shall be used on license plates, excluding license plate security covers.
        5202 CVC – Every license plate issued by this State or any jurisdiction within or without the United States shall remain attached during the period of its validity to the vehicle for which it is issued while being operated within this State.
