Rear signal relocation

Has anyone here ever tried to fab their own relocation brackets for the rear turn signals? I'd like to get the Kawi saddle bag brackets, but they are out of budget at the moment. So I'd like to fab my own, anyone have any ideas?
tips?........Warnings?

lots of this is always better than lots of this

So, why is a raven like a writing desk?

lance makes one that attaches to the license plate bracket. Think photos are posted in his gallery. Without some specialty tools and skills, would be hard to duplicate his exactly, but it might give you some ideas.

See also the post near this one about mounting saddlebags. Some pics of the Kawasaki relocation kit.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

You can measure the holes in the rail when you remove the tail lights, and KM has the measurements in his write up, IIRC.
