Is it possible to mount 2 scam headlights on a bonnie? Saw an older picture of Mid 50's bonnie like that...

By "scam" headlights do you mean Scrambler headlights, or is this some terminology I'm not familiar with?

Regardless, the answer is, "Yes, but it will take fabrication." Specifically, you'll have to find a way to attach them (by finding some buckets and making some brackets) and power them (by adding relays controlled by your original headlamp socket), neither of which should be too hard.

Someone has done a "Speed Twin" with dual side-by-side lamps. I don't know whether they were sourced from a Speed Triple, but that seems like a logical place to start.

There ya' go. Check out Phil-1100's bike most of the way down. Those look like Speed Triple pieces. Scrambler lights would look pretty bug-eyed, because they're somewhat larger.

EDIT:

Stock Scrambler lights are 5.75", though. They're also terrible. Mine now wears a 7", and is about to get stuffed with a Cibié lamp.
