I don't know if this has been covered but has anyone been up close to the back of any of the bikes to see how difficult it will be to get a tail tidy up under the seat? I hate the look of their plate holders!

Werkes Fender Eliminator is an option. However, it is something you can do yourself. You need a bracket and in most places a light to shine on the plate. Maybe I am old but if you are handy or have handy friend you can make a bracket and wire a LED light and plate to it.

Back in the 70's we remade everything.

This seems like the type of thing that you could figure out even if you aren't that handy. Easy enough to figure out and start on the road to becoming a handyman.

The tail tidy does seem almost necessary. The current place holder is pretty ugly. That's the case with almost every bike in the world though. Can't figure out why they don't just build the bikes with a tail tidy in the first place.

This is a Photoshop image I've been playing around with on the Icon. It's not perfect, but I just wanted to see what it'd look like without the rear license plate bracket and mud flap. Also of note, it doesn't have the carbon emissions box (which I'll be removing in real life), it has the side panel off the full throttle, and for fun I made the spring yellow. This PS job convinced me that I need to also remove the license plate mount and do a tail tidy on it. I'm unsure about the yellow spring.

Yeah the back end looks so much better with the back tyre on show! Yellow spring looks well with the yellow bike. The only other thing I would change is the handle bars but that's because I'm a full throttle fan

Ended up with the same bracket as belzvon. The seller shipped fast. The black (appears powder coated) plate came with hardware and a sheet of clear instructions. Installation was easy, most of the time was spend removing the wiring from the old licence bracket.
