Another "Naked" V - single headlight conversion

Thanks to Choccoloco for the inspiration...
Had a lady in town sew onto my tank bra to close in the front of the tank, and had a welder do the instument panel. took my mind off things for a lot of hours this winter, so far pretty stoked....meet Black Beauty...

yeah, chrome light, 7inch, I forget the brand I finally went with, but it wasn't too pricy (about $100)

Nice job! Maybe Suzuki should make a naked 'strom? Probably wouldn't turn out this pretty though...

yeah, already had the half bra, had a lady in town sew onto it...was worried it would flap around so had a velcro strap underneath, seems to be holding up well...here's another pic with the shield.. needed this time of year in BC.

Great Job



Looks great. The single does look so much better for the bike, I can actually look at it without puking.

Top stuff with the bra, it's a good idea.

After 3 months my wind shield arrived today. I'm also in the process of hooking up some spot lights.
