Hi, new to this group and really like it. Have looked at a couple of the photo albums and have seen a few of the bike with the old style lucas indicators and tail lights. I really like the look and am wondering where you get the parts for this mod. I have seen the tail lights but without the indicators. Also wondering if it's a pure "bolt-on" mod. Thanks in advance.

Lights

I too had this dilemma; solved my problem by pulling the thick rubber mount out from under the tail light and replacing it with some 1/4" rubber edge molding ala the Bonnie tail light. The plate rides a little low but it easy to make a bracket to raise it up so it sits even with the bottom of the fender.

I then got some mini bullet signals, pulled off the stockers, fabed up a plate to cover the resulting gap in the tail light housing, and mounted the minis. On the front I again used the stock mounts, but cut'em down to a reasonable size.

The rubber bits I used to finish off the signal bases are actually adhesive appliance feet from the hardware store. They had a little hollow in'em already so I just cored out the base and stuffed the signal in, and bonus, the adhesive base helps keep everything in place.

It seems like I'm always posting this pic. These are the New Bonneville plug 'n play units with running lights:





They are available in chrome as well.
