It's a Hella 90mm projector, with HID retrofit and custom cutoff shield by FGKouki (He is quite well known for retrofits on hidplanet.com!). The light will be independently mounted from the plate, so that I can aim it properly. It'll probably be mounted to the lower triple clamp with a bracket (Haven't quite decided what to do exactly haha). The plate will be held onto the forks using adjustable threaded hex stock and clamps on the fork tubes.

Finally got the frame back from powdercoating. Pictures are terrible, sorry. I had an accident and smashed one of my fingers pretty bad so the going might be slow. That and I have my senior design project due this week at school.

Remind me to bring my camera/flash over next time.   I have a really good idea to mount the headlight/backplate to the forks too.

Hey man; Do you have more pics of your truck? Is it a Datsun?

It's a friend's truck. It's a 90's Nissan Hardbody (I'd love a Datsun 620 though!)

Not many pictures of it exist unfortunately haha. It has 4x4 flares and is lowered on some 5-spoke 15x10 wheels

Lifted this thing in. Frame unscathed!


Coming together a little. One of the turn signals' threads snapped off :(

No offense, but that light and plate looks too HUGE on there. I was expecting something a little more form fitting. The battery tray is spot on though!

That's pretty amazing work! What is the name of that plastic material you're using? Sweet battery box and rear end.

I hafta agree.  I really dig the headlight plate idea, but it looks a bit big.

It is pretty big. I've still got to move it around and add a fender and whatnot, so I still have hopes it'll look ok (the picture is mocked up with everything hanging by strings and such haha). If worst comes to worst I'll just mount the projector between the forks and have a tiny headlight haha.

It does run now though, and I took it around the block a few times. The front is a little twitchy without a fender/fork brace. Anyone know of an easy fork brace I can purchase for this bike? I might do an enduro type high fender to make the plate look less awkward but want to keep the forks from twisting.
