The Grifter is a durable, injection molded, plastic weather resistant storage box that mounts between the motorcycle and the license plate. It is ideally suited to storing the vehicle registration and other small objects while remaining unobtrusive. The Grifter has features that provide benefits over other motorcycle storage devices i.e., low cost, concealed mounting location, vehicle styling is unaffected, and easy accessibility. The Grifter is sized to work with all standard size license plates but will also work with the current Wisconsin and Ohio cycle plates on most motorcycles. Includes all mounting hardware, retention pouch for paper documents, lock and two keys.
The Grifter does not fit the Maryland motorcycle license plate. It is not an exact match to Ohio or the “early” Wisconsin plate either; but it can be used with the Ohio plate in most instances and the “early” Wisconsin plate in many instances (both are “cycle dependent”).
As of April 1st, 2003, Wisconsin has switched to the “standard” sized license plate (4″x7″, with a bolt pattern of 2.75″x5.75″). Wisconsin motorcyclists can obtain a replacement plate from the WiDOT DMV for $2 (pricing may exclude personalized plates) which matches the Grifter size. All new Wisconsin cycle registrations after April 1st, 2003 receive the new “standard” sized plate.
