driving light mounts

Am trying to figure out a way to mount my driving lights on my 7/8" tube sw motech engine guard. Any ideas? I found brackets from PIAA that would do the trick on the motostuff website, however, I'd like to keep the bracket cost lower then that, but still keep it clean looking too. Was thinking that maybe a boat place would sell something similar for cheaper, but have had no such luck thus far. Any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks,
Joe

heavy, what size are those? Just curious what to look for. I saw those the other day and now looking at your setup that may be exactly what I need.

Thanks for the other options, a lot of which I've considered...was just trying to keep the expense down a bit.

Don't remember the size. 1" or 3/4", maybe 7/8" ? I do remember they were too big so I put a wrap of fuel line (any rubber strip would do) to make them snug. I guess it may help with vibration too.

Take a look at page 1489 of McMaster Carr's catalogue. They have 1/8" increments, up to 1".
