I am thinking about having the MC5 front number plate reproduced by a friend who is doing molds and reproducing the RM number plates currently. The last original NOS one I have seen was on a display bike at the AMA museum owned by Kent Knudsen. I have a couple original ones he will be using as the pattern but I would like to find a nicer one to scan. Cost of producing 10 would be about $50 a piece, less for a larger quantity. Any thoughts? I need five or six myself.

I guess I would not call that quite different but was not aware of the part number thing. Thanks. I guess if you were doing one of those concours restorations then it would matter. But then I guess every nut and bolt should be original. Seems like the fenders and sidepanels would be in bigger demand for that kind of detail. Thanks for the info.
