Default Blacked out old style headlight

I did a lot of searching, but could not find a picture of the older style headlight on a vegas that was black. As you all know they only come in chrome. Anyways, to make a long story short, here are some pictures of the old style headlight I had powdercoated black. Looks badass IMO.

They were color matched on 05-06 Hammer, and could be had in black

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

I agree with your opinion. It is badass! I did near the same to a 98 Honda Valkyrie. I only powder coated the bucket and left the headlight bezel chrome. It doesn't look badass on my bike but it does look more 'right' to me and I'm happy with it.

Yeah I do think it looks more badass. The bullet style looks good as well, it screams victory and it looks good when you see your reflection in the store windows. However the bullet light looks more appropriate in my opinion.
