    Headlight Ring

    I bought a headlight bucket from Roc City. Per Sean's suggestion I bought a headlight ring off a 1972 cb350. Unfortunately this bike had a weird 6.5" headlamp. The headlight bucket is 7" wide. Is there another headlight ring I can put on this that will allow me to use a more common headlight...

    can you just remove the cam covers?

    This is definitely a nooby question: Can i remove the cam covers easily to polish them? I started to try and take one off until i realized it was probably holding the cam in place. (ie. why it was so hard to pull out). So can you just pull these out and slide them back in the engine.

    Headlights! (I want one that I can put a gauge in)

    I know this is tanks & seats but it seemed most logical to talk about headlights. What headlights are people using? I am presently looking for a 7 in. headlight with a built in gauge. Or at least one deep enough where i can cut my own hole. Anyone know of a bike that has one of these...
