Thanks Bob - The plot thickens

I got my three sets of pressed aluminium plates for the Invacars from Designaplate@aol.com  The chap Phil said that he and Vinylarts were one and the same:-

Hi Barry.
Yes, designaplate and vinylarts are one of the same.
The plates we use are the same as bulldogs. These plates are made by one company.



I asked him about the back plate for the Raleigh runabout which would need 2 1/2" figures and he said they only do standard oblong.

Hi Barry..
We don't do plates of that size, the only plates we do are the standard oblong sizes, we can't get anything any smaller square wise than a 12" x 8.5".
Phil


Looks like I will have to find someone else for the special small size plates - I am OK for the back as I know people in Lambretts circles.  
It cant be too difficult to get the arched front plates (not really required).
I could get them from Tippers but they would cost more than the moped!

I made my own for my Guzzino using 2 1/2" stick on vinyl figures on a painted metal plate. Depends how fussy you want to be I guess.

I think you were probably more authentic using stick-on figures.  Many bike plates were just like that from new.
