I wonder if this set up will fit the narrow forks.

Look here. Mikenico took a standard dual headlight similar to this only the lights are individual and connected together and used the mounts to put it on the fork legs. You can also mount you turn signals to the brackets. Have you considered a buell 8 inch light. Looks really cool on cjburr's bike. The dual I have now does not fit a narrow glide but dual 4.5 inch lights could easily be mounted with a piece of flat steel mounted to your stock lower mount.


Here is a different type on ebay right now. Might look good for your application. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Stree...spagenameZWDVW

Here was his end product.

Here is my setup. It is the Rick Doss setup.

Here's something different for ya Bert. I have no idea what the lights are other than they appear to be halogen. Looks like he used trun signal reloaction clamps to munt them.
