So here is shot with the new headlights and blinker on, I am not sure of the blinkers as they look weird on the bike, thinking of getting some mini bullet style ones from ebay. I am also not loving the rear lights.

I like the blinkers. They are actually useful as blinker rather that the pretty much invisible little bullets a lot of guys put on. They are keeping true to the style of the original ones, while updating and modernizing the look.

The headlight is simply fuckin' awesome.
...every dump I take is original too, and it doesn't smell any better because of it's originality.
