License Plate Hide Away

Hey People!
I am starting to design my own flip up license plate for my Honda CBR F4. I will be using it for bike shows and well just in case!?!
I wanted to know if anyone has seen this before or would have pics or any knowledge of how todo this and what tools to use. I have thought about fliping it up or tucking it in do the fender electronically with a push of the button. Any assistance will be greatful. If you want please email me at [email protected]


Thanks,
Sam

Talking Let me know.....

If James Bond or "Q" contact you....ha ha ha ha


J/K.......sort of

Really though, it sounds like a pretty cool idea, if it's even possible, but I guess anything is possible with the right servos...hint,hint,hint

seen this done a hundred times, just never paid attention, the easier way it flip up then att you nee to do is mount the plate on a hinge and rig a servo from your local hobby shop to a switch, thats it. now if you really want to go trick make the one that flips and exposes anoth plate, or a sign or something

check out ebay, someone was selling them on there for about 100-150 does not look like it would be hard to rig up.

The Starboyz sell them on their site. Not exactly sure what their URL is, but I'm guessin' www.Starboyz.com wouldn't be too far off...

Go to www.starboyz.com and hit "enter"

Then select "Merchandise"

Then select "novelties"

The flip up license plate is on there. It's $150 tho' - so it ain't exactly what you'd call "cheap".

Cheaper than a speeding ticket with points tho'

Good luck!
