Number plate theft is rife around the world with tens of thousands stolen every year in Australia alone. Now you can secure your plate with this stylish Benzina Anti-Theft Plate Holder.
This Brisbane invention by new motorcycle gear company Benzina features a stylish base in black.
You can also paint it to match your bike or soon it will also be available in chrome as shown in the how-to photos.
The holder can be secured in any position thanks to its many sighting dimples for bolt holes.
That allows you to drop it down, or lift it up above the present plate position to tidy the tail of your bike.
In my case, I used it to cover the ugly rubber attachments on the indicators.
Then, simply screw or rivet your number plate to the base using the special stainless-steel shear-off bolts provided, leaving a blunt end that thieves cannot undo.
Not only does it make your plate more secure, but the holder prevents you scratching your hands when cleaning around the tail.
The Benzina anti-theft holders cost just $35 including postage and five shear-off bolts (normally more than $10). They are available exclusively through the MotorbikeWriter shop.
Strangely, each Australian state has different-sized number plates so these are only precisely matched for Queensland sizes only. NSW, Victorian and Tasmanian plates are 1mm different. Sizes for other states will be available at a later date.
However, they can be fitted to a variety of motorrcycles and scooters as shown below.
You can also add a $4.95 branded decal for your model or a “Benzina” or “Live to Ride” logo.
