Default Deleting passing lights (2013 Road King)

Hello cool people,
What is in your opinion the most reasonable (affordable without compromising quality) way to eliminate/delete the passing lights, yet keep the detachable windshield feature working?
Thanks in advance,
Newt

I think if it was me, I would buy some 1/8" steel stock from Home Depot and "recreate" the mounting end of the light bracket that hold the grommets in place and either paint it or have it chromed. Thats just me though. Maybe they make a kit?

I'm not a handy kind of guy plus no tools overhere. Wow!! Your Road King is amazing. I can only dream about such a bike. Great work.
Thanks for the reply and for sharing the pic of your baby.

Just remove the light bar and reinstall the rubber washers and bolts for the windshield, or add a thick washer in place of the light bar. Hope this helps you.

Or just check how it's done in Road King Custom. If I remember right, it was without passing lights.

Yes they are so he will need to find somewhere to mount new turn signals. Find some that mount to the handle bars, or get the LED mirrors that HD sells.
That is what I did.
