You can get them for free from your dealer... if you don't mind advertising for them!
Also many vendors sell custom frames at Rallies and shows...

I bought a plain black anodized one on eBay for about $5.

Ray - check this website if you want some personalized frames as a group buy, or individual purchase. Leetle on the pricey side (compared to Wal-Mart or Pep Boys), butt good stuff. I did a bunch of 'em for the CCR BoD one year ('01 I think), had 'em personalized to the event, and wuz very pleased with their service and the product.

Personalized plate

My wife and I got a personalized plate at the mall at one of those small shops in the center area of the walkways. It has the reflective strips so that photo radar can't pick you up. You just give the person your words, pick the type style and they engrave the frame you've picked. Just a thought!

Cheers, Bill

Hmmmm, I'd advise not putting a whole lot of faith in those reflective strips. I've been doing professional digital imaging for a long time, and I can routinely manipulate a digitalized image to reduce or bring up any element in the image to retrieve image segments that are not visible at first glance. A little work with a mask tool, bright/contrast levels and image enhancement and surprise, surprise, your license plate data is there for the whole world to appreciate.
