Front Number plate, painted with a black finish.
This number plate has a sporty rake on on one side (which would be facing the rear of the bike. However - if you prefer the symetric shape that was adoped on some bikes (i.e. the Vincent used a symetric front number plate commonly), then it is a simple job to copy the shape of the other end onto a cardboard template and then use this as a template to help cut away the 'rake' part on the other end, leaving a symetric style plate. I have done this with one of these plates when fitting one to my Vincent Comet restoration
