That's the look I am going for too. Well, I should say was setting up, until I messed my triple tree putting the brackets on. What size are they?

That is very cool, as an old Triumph rider I appreciate the "look", well done.

Better to put your knee down than your head!

I went with the 5 3/4". Still need to wire them up though and decide whether I should drop them a bit on the tubes:

daddy The lights are cool

OK, my question is how difficult is it to pull off. I love the look as well.
what size are they and is it a huge electrical issue....I have a stock 1500 classic

Mechanically, mine were quite a pain. Since I went with 5.75" assemblies, I couldn't really make an easy bracket that would mount the assemblies the same way as stock. I went with fork brackets, which required to lift the bike and drop the tubes (unless you can find brackets that are split in 2).

Electrically, it does not look too bad (I'm still wiring them up). Since the stock fuse is 10A, and 2 High Beam will pull just about 10A, I am only connecting 1 High Beam. If you're running the Wagner BP1210, you'll want to do some relay and wiring upgrade even for just the Low Beams.
