I think the easiest way to know will be to take a large piece of paper, cut it to the plate size, and then place it on the car.

Ummm, I got these over phone and must have mistyped it. I have seen these on bikes, I don't think it is 1 inch, but it is definitely lesser than 2 inches so somewhere around 1.5 inches.

I was about to suggest the same. I have never seen them on an OHC, not sure how it'll look.

Im sure most have you have noticed all the modded Honda's and a few of the other cars sporting the "ind" type registration plates. Especially the small front plates, mounted to the right hand side (similar to EVO's).

The size of the plate/font doesnt seem legal but the format/finish on most of them are excellent though.

Where can these be sourced?

Thanks.

For chennai guys, it is available in a place called speedex, formerly & very popularly known as 'Signs India' in Nandanam. Costs around 550 for a set. They are to be the authorised centre for these new number plates.

Yes, that is one main security feature. You can not remove the number plate once fixed ( the head of the screew breaks off when you tight).
