Make more of those light/turn signal plates and you could make a mint. I'd happily be your first customer.  ;D

Haha, I'm not an industrial designer but some of my friends are. One of them did the renderings of the light plate after I struggled with sketches for a few days (I'm an engineer, who can only draw with a T-square). It has been a lot easier to tweak in 3D.

The headlight is also going to be a little special, thanks to another friend's expertise in HID retrofits. The parts get in today, so maybe it can be done tonight!

I'd be misleading everyone if I said I was doing this all alone -- I'm lucky enough to have good assistance.


Oh, the bars are Renthal "ultra low" bars. I also like the wideness of them, as well as the finish. So much that my frame is going to be coated in a similar textured black :)

Laser cut the headlight plate out of ABS plastic. It needs to be bent to shape, hopefully I did the math right when "flattening" it out.

Gotta chime in and pay respect to that headlight plate!

Two words...very cool! Couple questions, though. What kind of light is that and how are you going to mount the lights up to that plate?
