That 6 1/2" Bates teardrop might be pretty, but if you can't get a light to fit it at any parts/bike/auto store because it's an odd size, you either should get 2 LED units (if you find some), to start with, or get a standard 5 3/4" or 7" unit. Be a pain to have to be down because you can't get a headlight locally. Just sayin'.
