Passing/Driving lights

I want to mount some 5 inch driving lights next to my headlight, but I don't want to mount a light bar. I want to use my stock turn signals. thought about fabbing my own brackets to mount them on from the existing hardware that hold my turn signal bar. any suggestions, pics of anyone doing this? don't want to spend big money on a light bar for sure.

04 1600 classic
V&H long shots
mustang seats
Harley hard bags
tour pack
led accent lighting

No suggestion on how to do what you described, but if you are adding them to be seen, they should be spread out a bit from the headlight. A triangle of lights will be more readily seen that one big blob.

Installed:
RAM mount for TomTom Rider 400 (with anti theft module)
6000k LED Headlight & Spots; Kisan Headlight Modulator (works with LEDs),
__Brake Light Modulator, LED License Plate Holder
Longer Kickstand
Dobeck EJK 3.0
Lucky Mirror Extenders
Misc. RAM Mounts for Cup Holder, SPOT, Phone, etc.
Chuckster BAK, Trailer Hitch and Cooler Rack
Wiring for Trailer
Ray's Throttle Mod
Things to do:
Drilling Baffle Plates (Maybe)
Paint HF Tag Along Trailer to Match Bike

LET'S RIDE

I agree with what u said, I love the look of the 4.5 inch daymakers but don't want to spend that kind of money. I have h3 led bulbs to put in the light sockets. I even thought about getting some universal led off road lights, just tryin to spread more light out front but don't want it to look silly either.
