I did it, if you have OEM windshield you now have an option

I did it, it took a bit to find supplies and buy some tools but I build mounts for my driving lights, I copied the design some but considering I couldn't find a place to purchase them (out of production) I made my own.

They look rough and will be refined and likely painted but if anyone wants some let me know I'm going to wait until I have 5 sets ordered before I go into production.

Will look fine when bombing down the road! Clean it up before entering it into a show - then again, I got a motorcycle to ride it - not show it off sitting in a parking lot or a grassy field - but that is just me. I do like looking at those bikes in the parking lots and grassy fields or buildings or anywhere.

Looks good for first a first-draft mock-up. I have the apparently now discontinued brackets, the original design has an adjustment screw for left and right aiming of the spotlights, did you allow for that in your design? I also see that you didn't make a slotted adjustment in your brackets mounting point to allow for up-and-down movement to follow the up-and-down adjustability of the windshield, your customers windshield most likely will not be set at the same height as yours so you have to allow adjustability in your design for that.

Don't be a dummy and ride unprotected, it's like picking up a prostitute without bringing a condom along for the ride.

I did allow for the left and right adjustment, as for the height adjustment once I work with different size material I'll look into that as for now these ones will only work with windshield all the way up as it needs the clearance for the bar to go out under

Well today I took the time and got everything wired up and working, I must say I love it, I'm waiting until payday to get more material to bake a cleaner more refined version of the brackets but as for who cares it works :grinning::grinning: and yes my garage is messy :sunglasses:

All good down here, my friend, thank you. But sick of winter, and itching to ride!
