anyone know where i can get one made, the only one i can find on ebay only says 250watt and doesn't look very kosha to my eyes. i want to put on make of motor, wattage, amps, motor number etc to make it look genuine. I read an ebay address for one but cant remember the thread. Just in case Mr Plod takes an interest i want to be safe rather than sorry.

it is a waste of time as the only time plod will take an interest is when you run over some one even then prob be not interested unless you killed them.

none off the ppl i have ran over never made a complaint about it ;)

Riding in a manner that suits your surroundings is better than any sticker you care to put on your bike/motor.

You can make your own.
1. Design a professional looking label on your PC. Aim for about 40mm wide. It should say:
Motor manufacturer's name and town
250W
EPAC according to EN15194
Max speed 25 km/h

and if you want to be really cheeky, add an EC symbol.

2. Print it in the middle of an A4 piece of paper
3. Get some of that 2" wide aluminium sticky-backed tape.
4. Use a Pritt Stick to stick it directly over the printed image.
5. Place it with the correct orientation and print again.
6. Get some 2" wide Selotape and stick it over the label to waterproof it.
7. Trim with scissors.
8. Clean your motor, peel off the backing and stick on the label.

Note that it only works with laser printers. If you don't have one, you can print out on a cartridge printer, but then you need to repeat the above process in a photo-copier to get the image onto the aluminium.

Thanks Nealh that was exactly the one i was looking for. And for everyone else FFS £3.50 isn't much just in case some clever plod/official seeking promotion gets a bit funny, What size is it says plod, oh i dont know cuntstable will the plate on my motor give you the info you need, i mean i'm just a law abiding ebiker who doesn't know anything.
It could happen and if it does i want to be prepared(i used to be a boy scout many moons ago)

@d8veh thanks that's a good design very professional looking
