Default Triangular headlight question

Hey gang,

Got a question for you Victory gurus. I'm looking for the triangular Victory headlight housing (or full assembly....I already have the lens but I'll take what I can get).

First question...is this a super hard part to come by? I have only found one on all of the internet, and it's gold so I'd have to get it painted. My other option with it leads me to the next question which is....

#2. What is the headlight made of? Plastic, aluminum or steel? I thought I could maybe strip the paint and if it's made of aluminum, I could steel wool it to get the brushed aluminum effect then clear it.

I don't have a Victory bike (don't hate). I'm a big fan of Victory. I have 3 friends that work at their R+D facility which is just a mile from my house. I get to see many of those purdy bikes come and go throughout the summer. love them! I just couldn't afford one so I got myself an 07 Yamaha Warrior. I'm looking to change out my stock headlight for the Victory one that is triangular. That will likely mean I'll have to relocate my tach, keyswitch, shave the triple trees, and do some other mods. Worth it though if I can get a light to fit in there.

Thanks for any information you can offer up. Much appreciated!

Just answered you in your intro post.

But let's party here instead!
Headlight housing=aluminum
Top half= $30
Bottom half= almost $400

These are prices for brand new. Why the variance in price between the top and bottom? I don't know. Cuz they can?

Not hard to come by new. Just pricey for the bottom half.

All in good fun bro, just thought it was funny.
