Another lighting post $20

I thought I would share a cheap DRL idea. I had some DRLs on my bike. The lens got broken and corroded the innards so I was looking for a budget replacement. I took a chance on some $20 units from Ebay. When looking to mount them, I considered many options, but the simplest and most effective seemed to be just drilling a hole in my SW Motech crash bars. I didn't really want to drill the bars but couldn't come up with a real downside that overruled the ease and excellent placement of the lights. Caveats - even though I live in the NW, my bike seldom sees rain and I don't ride at night. I hope this works for someone else.

Nicely done but I think I'd try to use some sort of clamp before I reduced the integrity of my crash bars by drilling through them.
