Front turn bracket

Apologies if all this has already been covered. I replaced the standard "long stalk" turn signals on the front of my 2010 Bonnie with after market mini turns. Now I have purchased a OEM fly screen and the short indicators interfere with it. Found a front signal relocater brkt on BC website for $20. Best I can tell from research, this is the same thing that comes on a Thruxton. I can order a Thruxton OEM bracket for about $10 on BikeBandit. What gives? Is this the same bracket?

Cool, thanks. Now I can work on those huge runway lights on the back fender.

Same here, I ordered up this Lucas light. It's a little pricier then most others out there but I think the mounting bracket the seller makes for it adds a real premium look to this common mod.

Canyon racer makes really nice stuff. I've never used that particular Lucas light from him but if its half the quality of his FEK then it is top notch.

I like the smaller taillights for the clean retro look, but I wonder if a 2 1/4" light (see link) is big enough to be safe?

I like the look, too, and had the same one mounted to the back of my old Honda cafe bike. Never had any problems, though I did consider doing an LED swap for added brightness.
