check out these lights :)

Got these Show Chrome bullet lights from Motorcycle superstore for $53 each. I am using the factory Victory light bar brackets. I never liked the way the old school factory driving lights looked. These look like they where MADE for Vics!



Anyone wanna buy my old driving lights WITHOUT the brackets

They do look great.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Ditto.

I question the mounting on the brackets though. It looks to me like the friction between the light mounts and bracket supplied by the bolt is the only thing that keeps them from rotating around the bolt. I'd be a little worried they might start moving around after a few good jolts.

I'd be interested to hear your experience after a few thousand miles with them.

No worries.
The supplied bolt with these lights has a anti back out nut (with nylon inbeded in it). I do not see any problems with it becoming loose at all!

They sure do...... But how effective are they at illuminating the road at night compared to say, Clearwater LED lights. They are obviously a ton less expensive.

GOODY'S fork mounted lowers (3M'd)
Bag graphics & inner fairing, Bad Boys Design Peoria, AZ. Sena & XM in the saddlebag

I should have mentioned they are WAY brighter than the factory lights!
50w Halogen bulbs!
