    Pretty cool!

    What light assemblies did you use?

    How many amps does it draw?

    The mounting bracket is completely hand fabricated, the factory Aluminum brackets were cut in two, shortened and reversed to mount turned inward. The unit uses the 3 factory headlight mounting points and T Taps were used in wiring so factory setup could be reinstalled very quickly and easily. The bars are 36 watt each, so not much more draw when running high " both" bars than factory. I do plan on installing an LED rear brake light and possibly turn signals to bring total wattage being used on bike down. The bars are listed as Cree 7" bars and they are Flood beam 60 degree.

    image.jpg. Here is a look at the mounting bracket before paint or light hardware.... I was also able to relocate the horn to behind this unit for a very clean motor area look..

    Excellent customization Rumblefish. I have never seen anything like it. One concern I have is are cars flashing you at night on the roads.

    I'll play. Not a cool mod like the OP's. More of a strategy upgrade.

    •LED turn signals with running lights
    •1300 lumen 30° light bar in place of the reflectors wired into the brights (they really throw out a nice even light that alluminates everything in the vicinity).
    •Cyclops LED 3800 lumen replacement bulb in the OEM housing (the brights reach out with a nice light for about a quater mile, the are much better than the factory bulb, but the defractor causes a few shadows close to the bike).

    TopPredator, I have now been running this light for a few weeks, I havent been " Bright Lighted" yet. I do live in the south where LED Light bars are pretty common on trucks/jeeps..... I have a Harley with Harley Davidson LED conversion kit. I do get " Bright Lighted on that bike even on low beam.......

    I was going to add my version but apparently you have to have a certain number of posts to add a picture
