I need pieces of anodized aluminum

So I'm trying to customize the way my license plate frame is mounted onto the bike. I've actually already got a perfect scrap piece for the plate itself to mount to, but now I just need a couple of pieces of "S" shaped aluminum in order to mount it properly to the frame in the way I want it.

There's no one out there that makes a specific type of frame the way I want it, but if I can get my hands on some anodized aluminum, bend it to the shape I need, it will be perfect. I just dont know where to look for pieces like this.

FWIW, this may be a little more DIy than you are looking for but it isn't that hard to make it out of raw aluminum and then anodize it yourself.... Some small tubs, depending on the size would be plenty to get it done. You might try and google it.

Some aluminium will not brnd well. Do not use 6061. As it will crack use 7071 or 5000 series alumium

Thinking about this a little more, I could probably get away with an "L" shape piece of metal instead. I dont know what grade of aluminum this stuff is, but what do you think of this at Lowes? Or something along those lines anyway.
