So what is this from?

Attached is a pict of the front end of my 1995 triumph trident 900. I know that the light isn't stock. I have been redoing the bike, carbs, battery, plugs, wires, etc

Two points.

First anybody know what it might have come off of and second any idea what to replace it with that looks at all like the front originally did. Prob also need the "old turn signals".

Secondly, since I have this kind of front on it, I have spaghetti behind it. Where does all of that go if I put on a more standard light?

No idea what you've got there, but IIRC Mot replaced the headlight on his Speed Triple with something a bit less pricey that looked factory. The spaghetti goes inside the headlight shell. Not pretty in there...

you'll want a 7inch round headlight to put on with a baowl all the wiring goes in the bowl, I replaced the glass/reflector with a cibie unit that works better than stock, yours looks aftermarket or maybe from a smaller 125 trials type bike at a guess.
