Most platenguys make them, it'll just not be a "number plate".
They won't use the SABS approved plastic and it won't have their dealer number on it

In fact, all you need to ask for is the rectangular plate with reflective backing with the numbers on.

not sure if laws have changed, but I heard it was better not having a plate, than an illegal plate?

I'm looking to get a slightly but not radically smaller plate made "as a decoration for my garage wall"  ;) 'cos the legal size keeps getting destroyed by snagging the rear tyre, despite my twice modifying the mounting. (Alright, okay, it's all the fault of that lousy airbag rear suspension) but a smaller plate is cheaper than a rear shock.  :biggrin:

But I was talking to a rider with no plate on his bike and he told me that a cop had stopped him that morning and ordered him to remove his tiny illegal plate and advised him to keep it under his seat because "You can't ride like that" then bid him good day and drove away.  :lol8:
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"Two Wheels, an engine and a place to sit." What more do you need?

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.

No plate in GP R2500 and if anything else is wrong on the Bike they will tow it for you for free. Illegal plate, R500 fine.

LA Number Plates https://landagroup.net/printing-and-signage-cape-town/

They also do metal plates, which I use as its easy to bend back when you fall

I dont get smaller than legal, I just ask for the smallest possible legal metal plate. However some other guys do get smaller than legal ones from them

Will have to go look for it. This was the message that Mr Metro gave me when I was pulled over with no plate.  Luckily the guy was real nice and understood that I just bought and picked up.

Been stopped plenty times with the 690 and 450, both with "smaller" plates. Never had an issue.

Number plate shop next door to Steers in Keoberg Road Montague Gardens.  In that hard to get to small shopping centre opp BUCO ( old Pennypinchers ).

In there you get a small number plate, no worries

Not SABS approved:  R500 / 1 point
No plates:  Court / 6 points
Not applicable plates: Court / 6 points
Plates obscured or illegible: Court / 6 points.  (Only one plate, then R250 / 0 points - rather fat loophole for bikers)
False plates:  Court / 6 points

Charge code 1231 for motor cycle without plate is R500.
Code 1226 is R1,000 for non SANS plate.
Then there are several codes for R500 related to plates.

That is for cars.  Bikes have a fat loophole here too.
