Well, finally got tired of the abortion that was the license plate bracket. The rest of the Bird looks so nice that I just couldn't take it any more. It isn't a T-Bird specific feeling; it just seems that license plate brackets on most stock bikes look like more of an after thought than something that is part of the design and leave a lot to be desired. So I got out the tools last night and here is what I have now. I cut off the stock bracket just below the reflector, removed the standard plate light and mounted a backing plate to the flat spot. Wired it up and done. I used a Custom Dynamics low profile LED frame (it has a lifetime warranty) and I have to say, I like the way it came out.
