Motorcycle license plate/tags/Nummernschild

I'm modding an old Honda CM250 and I'm having a hard time making the plate work aesthetically. I'm shortening the rear fender and adding a solo seat, and there won't be any room to mount the plate in the normal location below the tail light. I'm wondering if it's legal to mount the plate on the side of the bike, and which side, and if so can it be mounted vertically (on its end)?

Thanks!

I think as long as it is illuminated and has a red reflector, you will be OK. Is there no tail tidy option for you in the normal location?

Many Harleys have them on the side, so it's not forbidden - usually left (don't know if that's the legal requirement, or not) and correct orientation.
As above, regarding illumination.

Can't quite grasp the shortened mudguard on a CM250, though.

And maximum 45 degree angle tilted upward.

The reflector is usually built into the tail light, and has nothing to do with the plate.

On the bikes I have with no integral reflector, I attach it to the plate holder.

One has a led plate light, which you will certainly need if the plate is not near the tail light.

Why can't you mount the plate below the light at an angle?
