I was inspired by another bike, the Doc's Chops BOLT:
where the turns were pulled in and hidden under the head lamp. I figured I could do something like that using the existing turn bracket. For review:
The existing turns are already under the head lamp, but stick out like a coat rack. So I pulled them off and cut back the tubular bracket down to size.
I fattened up the screw mounts on the LED turns with some 3/4" OD rubber tubing which just slides into the tube of the old turn mount. I slotted the ends and used pipe clamps to make the turns snug.
A little paint on the rusty chrome:
And put everything back together:
The stainless pipe clamps give it a steam-punk feel!
Here I was able to catch the LED blinking on:
Now the damn lamp bucket looks HUGE. Can't cheap out the headlight. Will require purchase of a 5" Bates style lamp. That will have to wait. I woke up to one of my giant Like Oak trees down across my horse fence. I'm going to have to pay a crew to finish the clean up and removal. :(
