Nice job.I like how you used the existing bolts to mount the brackets.

I believe I bought the mini-indicators from BellaCorse, but they don't carry them any longer. However, they're widely available...I found these at the Dennis Kirk site:

My front indicators are the same as the rears. I installed them in the same holes as the stockers:
Do those short signals interfere with your ignition switch?

Personally, I like the kit I picked up from NewBonneville. The turn signals aren't obstructed when running saddle bags on those long trips. And they're running lights as well.

The blinkers and tail light on Sheepdog's and Bluesforchallah's bikes look so much better than stock it's not even funny. Makes me wonder why Triumph didn't do something like that from the factory.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the newbonneville Euro plug and play kit is going on mine this winter.

I know looks are subjective, but there's very few thngs on these bikes that are blatantly wrong. IMHO, the stock blinkers and tail light stick out like dogs' balls.

Agreed. The tail light is a replica of the Lucas 564, fitted to Triumph models between 1951 and 1953 I believe. Mine started out as the Euro from NB but I separated the turn signals from the light unit. The light unit now runs a plug n play LED board from Matchless Clueless:

I'd rather have something like the Lucas Beehive TL55 tail light. But I haven't been able to find an aftermarket supplier that makes them for these new Bonnevilles. If anyones got any ideas...
