Sure, it’s a Bikemaster 7” complete headlight assembly with bucket, lens, reflector and bulb.

It’s a quality copy of the modern Bonneville headlight. I chose a large bucket because of all the wiring inside that year Sportster. I might have gone with a slightly smaller, or even a Kawasaki style 7” if not for that.

I wrote it up in this thread.
