A picture paints a thousand words - and almost brought my breakfast back.

I think it's made even worse because it's blocking such a great view

I see it has no indicators, but then I wouldn't want to attract attention to myself while riding it either

Although later iterations of my bike were fitted with indicators, they look pretty ugly and I was wandering if there were any after market alternatives that would look "period" be relatively discreet but still effective. Is this expecting too much?

I'm sure other have been down this road: any advice?

Have a look at my build thread, starting from page 7:
I am happy with the indicators from Goffy. They're cheap, work well, and don't look too bad.
