Could you spray them on the INSIDE and not need the clearcoat ? Might try that.

^^ That works well on clear lenses but not that well on coloured. It is useful for making the light appear a different colour when illuminated, ie, blue tint on the inside make a red lens appear purple when lit.


I wonder if the new thunderbird clear lenses would fit ???

Nope. Doesn't look like.

UNI pods, AI removed, de-baffled TORs, relocated battery, custom bobbed fender, custom wiring, etc

Was the vendor called "Classic Bits"?

Do you remember specifically which model # the lenses were?

Yup, it appears the Lucas L760 lamps will fit our bikes with a modification of the screw holes. Even better, these are available in real glass!!!

Carbide or diamond burr would do it.

I too went with the Lucas lens (Red). I had put on the Signal Minder and wanted to use the running light option with the turn signals but Ohio (USA) does not like Ambers that are constantly on.
Found them on E-Bay. The holes were just a tad off. Nothing a small Dremel adjustment could not fix. Looks good with all red in back plus all on and all work as brake lights. Wayne
