Here are a few fuzzy pics of my radiantz puckz taillight and my mini led turnsignals. The radiantz is really bright and the turnsignals are bright enoung to pass inspection. Here is the crap photo of the turn signals. I had to take several before I got the signal cadence down. http://images1.snapfish.com/3473399%3C2%7Ffp344%3Enu%3D3263%3E2%3C3%3E9%3C5%3E WSNRCG%3D323383445%3A%3A25nu0mrj

For those who asked if it was bright enough I think this answers the question.

Louie, You could have a bull hornand a fog light and most cagers don't see you. That is why I always gun it when I change lanes. My bike is fast enough to get in front of just about anything.

Are those signals homemade? They look like those great big bright clear red ones from Radio Shack. If not homemade, what kind are they?

I have a row of custom warning lights with those RS LEDs and was dreaming up a way to use them in the rear... looks like you may have figured it out.

Thanks gary, I new it was out there somewhere. I cut off the struts and drilled them and then put in led's. This was an effort to do something different and to have bright functional unseen light. I thought it would be cool and then I found the perfect taillight to go with it.

Thanks to our good brother sportster1200 from up north for donating the struts for this most excellent experiment. I also filled the ugly recess for the reflectors. I hate reflectors on sportsters.

Ralph,

Sorry I somehow missed your other thread. The lights look awesome! No thanks necessary for the struts, just glad to help a brother out. Although if I am ever down your way a beer would be nice.

I was wondering when we would see pics and I missed the thread...duh!

Saw your post on the QCB site and flipped over here to see the build.

I am finished my project (well okay, some z-bars, etc. coming )hopefully post some pics here and there tonight.

looks good ralph. they look brighter than I imagined they would, especially the turn signals. They will look even better at night when they will stand out much more than in the sunlight.

There is the link to my bike pics. I am happy with everything. I wish I had the sound of the thunderheader just to sound a little more macho. I might not be able to get used to the racer sound.
