I like them B. New LED's would be brighter but you may want to keep the vintage feel with the incadescent bulbs, If you need less draw on the electrical a swap to LED would make sense, but the old bike old bulbs kind of suites, even with the new faces, you kept the vintage logo, so it fits.
Re: Project "Caroline" CB350four And so it Continues!
Thanks guys, I have been keeping with the theme that all of the mods I am doing on the bike as far as appearance wise could have been done to the bike in the 70's, so I like the look of the incandescent bulbs. They just have a nice warm glow about them and like I said, the picture really does not give you a clue of how they actually look while illuminated. In person they are way brighter and the white shows up better. The real look I am after is for the finished bike to look as if it were a factory made concept bike or a low numbers special production bike.
Thanks guys, I have been so busy with my new position at work, I have not even had time to log on to DTT in a while, much less actually get out in the shop and work on Caroline. EWD, I did make thos faces myself and I have some designs for sale through Dime city Cycles if you want to check them out.
Just so you all know, as soon as I get a chance to get back on Caroline I will. In the meantime I have picked up a 1977 Suzuki GS750 that I am riding. I bought it at a great deal and got it running quick. I am not going to do any more work on it now. I am just going to ride it a bit and sell it to give myself some extra money for Caroline.
I hope to be back at it soon. Hope all of you are well!
About time you get back to this!! I read through this entire thread the other day and it just stopped... haha. Glad to see your back at it man. I really like what you got goin on here. Cant wait to see more!
Cant make it man, my wife and I are going on a trip for our anniversary a week before the tenn. trip, so I will not be able to take time off work again. I thought of trying to get Amy to go to tenn. and let that be our anniversary trip.......I just got a "look" when I mentioned it!
