Ah the good ole days. The flat bar was an idea i came up with,when others the signals were coming out straight through.
Still have them on with only one grote light replaced.

Yep thats what I got....mine are just a little further apart because I didnt cut the long coupling after the bracket and my signals hang straight down right below the lights. My lowers force them to be on an angle..Looks ok, not sure, I might add the flat bar so they can be horizontal below the lights ....

Furbird, can you give a link to this seller?

Honda VTX 1800 Type C R s N F T Retro Custom Chrome Passing Fog Headlight | eBay

These look more like the ones I have, but mine are the previous version with a smaller bulb. It's tough to tell what bulb is in these, but these look closer to the Boulevard headlight:

Furbird, thanks for getting back to me. I am checking them out after this. Still have not made a final decision on lights yet, would like to bring the wattage down. Considering these also. I am not sure which angle to choose from. 25 or 45 degree angle. I thought since the 25 will have a more concentrated beam, it would spread out well enough to light up a good distance ahead with a good spread also. Any thoughts?


The bottom listing looks like an incandescent lamp when looking close to the pics. Need low power consumption with high beam output.

Rips241, I found the brand new off-road lights kit manufactured by Grote, a set part number 64101 . If you know anyone that may want them at a good price, do it quick. There are 3 more at 49.99 free shipping.
