Ha, I was thinking the signals and headlight looked kinda small-ish.   8)  But good.

BTW, do you got a link for those signals?

To each their own I guess. Both the headlight and turn signals are much smaller than stock. the wide angle lense on my phone is making them look bigger than they are. Trek - they are the bullet turn signals that air tech sells.  I think they have a good vintage vibe while still being small, this is my third bike with them. Unfortunately they only come in single filament but I have tracked down some parts to make them dual filament for running lights.  http://airtech-streamlining.com/miscpages/lights.html  EDIT- looks like dime city sells them now too.

load them to pc and correct them if needed. Your phone will auto rotate if you take it sideways or crop it

the only bummer about doing the tach/headlight combo is there is no logical place to put this oil light. any suggestions?

The gauge has 3 idiot lights but they are all pretty small. If this oil light is coming on I want to notice it right away. I was thinking it might be possible to have the gauge back light flash or something but I have no clue on how to do that.
