Sweeeeet. Is that a VROD headlight assembly? Which brackets did you use for the forks?

Hello and thanks for your feed back.  You have a good eye . It is a Vrod headlight with home made brackets to fit the forks. Cheers

Sweet looking machine! I used that headlight on a build too! It's got classic lines. The little set screws in the back of the housing always wanna vibrate loose on me.... still a cherry light and bike
