The license plate/ plate light were relocated to the back of the motorcycle hitch with a trailer license plate bracket. I added standard trailer lights to the back of the motorcycle hauler as well.

It's pinned. Beyond the skills of most people but with the pics they can show someone who could do the work for them if they needed it. Thanks

Thanks for pinning this! We were discussing how to get a scooter on the back of the one I purchased just last night! This is perfect to give to my brother so that he can do this for me. Great info!

I want to do something similar to this. I have a friend that is a master at metal fabrication. I'll have to talk to him and show him this post. I do have a question. I heard a long time ago that you had to disconnect your alternator when you welded on a vehicle. Is there anything to that? Thanks in advance.

Yes. On rare occasions you can fry a diode in an alternator by arc welding on the frame, or by using a high-amp boost charger on the battery. That being said, I've welded a lot of car, truck and tractor frames without disconnecting the battery and only had problems twice. Both times it was with Delco SI type alternators that often have weak diode trios. Generally speaking though - since it's so easy to do - you should always disconnect one of the battery cables when welding on the frame. It's cheap insurance and in this case it's free insurance.
