i made this a couple years back when i first got my bike, but i had to change out a rear blinker that went out and decided to take some pics. I could have done a better job and made it a little cleaner, but when i did it i threw it together in like 30 min but you get the idea


First off start with a lenght of alum angle iron, you can get it at most hardware stores for like $5.

Cut to 7", then one one side of it i cut off 1 1/2". you can use a dremel, hacksaw ect to cut it. I did it with a dremel.
the part that attaches to the bike needs holes drilled. I used the factory bracket that is sqare and has 4 holes in it for a template, the other side is for the license plate and you can use the plate for a template




I used the factory hardware to put it all back together. The spacers are really handy when you turn them upside down and they give you a llittle bit of clearence so nothing rubs.
Here it is on the bike



here are the rear turn signals that i used, they attach right to the plate. I have been using them for 2 years and been really happy with them.



here it is on the bike (yeah, the bike is filthy, needs a good wash)



like i said, i did this in about 30 minutes and with about $5 and had material left over to make a couple more
Let me know what you guys think

im sure you could modify it a bit to work with them, i dont remember how the stock ones mount up off the top of my head, but it should be easy to work it out

those turn signals are made to go in the license plate holes
i got them for like $20 on Ebay
I am sure that you go to a hardware store and get some flat stock and make your own L brackets to fit whatever turns that you will be using
