Yes, you'll be able to see how you need to design your bracket once you take a look at the existing headlamp mounting fixture.

Yes, my new headlight is 7" round.

yep. Took me a lil thinking to conceive it away from the bike. Lol.

1. This particular headlight (JW Speaker 8791) comes with a pedestal mount and is designed to be mounted as-is.

2. 4-pin Delphi Metri-Pack 150 Series
Is this a commercial solution or something you had fab'd up yourself?

This is definitely a 'one-off' solution.

I gave a local machine shop the existing headlamp/mounting fixture and the new JW Speaker headlight, and they designed the 3-piece aluminum bracket. Then, I had to buy a 4pin connector with a crimping tool to connectorize the headlight.

Off to the next mods.

Good job.

Just curious, as I think up crazy customization from time to time, how much did that job cost? Just the bracket.

Thanks.

A couple boxes of pizza and a 30rack for the (3) aluminum pieces. Then, $25 to powder-coat them gloss black.
