Default Need a chopped fender tail light

Does anyone know of a manufactured tail light that would work with a chopped fender? I cut my xl1200l fender down to the struts, originally I had a light assembly like THIS.

But I was doing a speed run down a country road the other day and my tire came into contact with it and wore a big part of it out. I had it epoxyed to the fender so it stayed on, next run it ended up on the side of the road though.

I have PN# 54662-09 air shocks on the rear that were about 3/4" longer then my stock shocks, and then I put 1" lowering blocks on. I thought I would be good but evidently I need something pretty low profile..

I dont really want to have to custom make something but if it comes to that I was thinking just red LED's under the lip that would light up the rear. My brake and turn signals are carried out on different lights.

video of the old setup to kinda illustrate what I mean

I thought about that before but I'm not going for that look with the bike. And I made a center mount plate bracket off the seat-fender mount.
