I have read that it is possible to make a light bar by using the existing signal light bar. I can't seem to find the link, but someone used 2 spot lights and clamped them on to the existing bar. I was wondering if anyone have done this? I would also like to find this link to take another look to see if it is a possibility.

Or is it better to bite the bullet and buy. Does anyone have any suggestions to the best brand for price and easy assembly?

Rockkid,
I am biased a bit leaning towards fabricating anything you can, mostly because it leaves a personal taste and when people see it they cant just bolt one on themselves. The question becomes invest time and get a very gratifying result that others can't just buy themsleves or just money and seeing the same result on other bikes.
I know the feeling some things are better just buying but others need a personal touch. I hope this helps either way, for what it is worth fabrication of parts has a rewards only it can have.
Blessings
Mr. Busdriver

I just bought one. I don't have the talent to make one that looks good and functions.

I have a 2002 Meanstreak, and I fabricated my own! I bought two 3' spot lights for like $30 bucks a piece! I also bought some clamps that were used to hold it to the black rubber bracket on the inner parts of my turn signals! Then I went to I think it was Lowes and bought a long flat quarter inch peice of steel! The rest is history! Here are a couple pics!

rk,, I have had a lot of bikes with lite bars.. they suk. theyr always misaligned easily, require lotts of maintenance to keep them working and they make your sled look like a nasa satellite with antenna hanging off pointed in every direction..

still you need more lite and project a bigger frontal presence on the road. watt to do?
I did this to my v2k pressing it into tour duty service. gott some 4x4 offroad lites, hevy duty rubber isolated, great for spotting deer in the back 40. (not necessarily street legal?) who would know.. or care. I pointed them slightly down so as not to blind oncoming traffic.. too much. what do you know - it worx! Now riding at nite is like landing a 747, the road is illuminated so well you could pick up loose change in the road.. and nobody is gonna miss WTF is that thing coming at them? poncho

Thanks

I am still on the fence. I live in a very small community, so supplies are limited. I am thinking that I should order a light bar. I am leaning towards a cobra light bar, because I am having a hard time finding other brands that fit my bike.
