Monster (S4RS) inexpensive tail mod and cleanup

The Ducati Monster up to 2008 are notorious for having a somewhat ugly rear fender and tail. In fact it is so unappealing that the tail of the bike is lovingly referred to as the "beer tray".
So I have decided to make a small and inexpensive modification by removing the extra plastic license plate holder and fender and using a couple of anodized aluminum strips to put the license plate right under its light, thus cleaning the tail of the bike quite a lot. The mod is somewhat self explanatory if you look at the pictures.
