    Hi guys...i thought long and hard about headlamp conversions, projector/ streetfighter style, retro single lamps, until i realized the bug eyes are as sexy as hell and difficult to better. What i really didnt like is having the lamps and guages frame mounted ( "is that a crashed sportbike?" ) .....I settled for mounting everything on the forks. It now looks very compact and i feel more at home on it.
    What i did was butcher the existing lamp mount, I found some chunky alloy brackets at my local hardware, drilled these to suit existing bolt holes, all suspended off these neat alloy fork brackets from my local motorcycle accessories supermarket.
    It could have gone badly wrong but with carefull measuring and cutting it worked out pretty well perfect.
    Oh and i found some amazing LED globes at a specialist car shop with little cooling motors inbuilt. I crammed these into the existing shells.
    im pretty damn happy with it and it hasnt lost what makes it distinctly Triumph
