Chapter 16 - Headlight
Got a cheapo Harley replacement LED headlight on Amazon. Less than $60 for bucket and headlight assembly. Has a pretty decent beam pattern!
When I got the General, it only had one of the headlight ears. I really liked the design of it, but alas, I was missing one and didn't feel like trying to source another. The usual retailers didn't seem to have any, so I gave up there.
The headlight I ended up with has a bottom pivot mount, so I needed to make a bracket for it. I used the fork tube clamp bolts to hold it in place. This was also a chance to practice welding aluminum, which I've never done. Practiced a few minutes running beads on flat stock (and getting a feel for machine settings), then jumped in head first to inside fillet weld. Not perfect, but I'll take it for a first try!
