    Seeking simple customization parts suggestions

    Hi -- a few years ago I spotted this nice TW for sale on ebay and saved the photos. Now I have a 2015 TW200 (with too much white plastic) and want to start changing things up and head in the direction this guy took. It would sure be a big help if I could hear from members what parts work best for what I'd like to do (and where to find them). I have some skills/tools, but hoping to minimize needed modifications. Ideally, parts that are known to work well with the TW.

    I'd like to start by (1) replace the headlight with a nice round retro version
    (2) replace the plastic front and rear fenders (I like the chrome ones seen below)
    (3) replace the taillight and turn signals with low profile versions like those on the Iron Clad bike below.

    If you have suggestions on where to find this stuff, love to hear them. Thanks! -- TWB

    No need to start two similar threads. TW-Brian answered your question yesterday.

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Betty Boop has those turn signals. I got them years ago at local Cruiser accessory store. Possibly British? Their bulbs were not very vibration resistant and replacements were both expensive and hard to find. Now have installed LED inserts in the reas and re-wired single filament sockets up front. Never saw similar all metal chrome turn signals like those on-line.
