alternatives for plastic lights on v7 racer
« on: January 11, 2015, 06:29:55 PM »
I'm one of those vane people who hates imitation chrome on plastic parts, therefore ive been looking for alternatives but having no luck.

Has anyone in there internet exploration seen anything ? i would like to change all the lights to metal based for back brake and indicators plus front indicators.

Modifying the part to fit the bike is not ideal as i'm a plug n play sort of fellow (lazy).

thanks.

I have mounted billet turns on a V11Sport, pricey but nice. Not bad for these---

They have other farcles too, don't be lazy w/it, do it up nice

I have those same signals (though only single filament) on my MZ.

I got a set of these guys in satin black .... solid metal ... just need a couple of 1 to 2 inch stems to look right.
Available in 2 or 3 wire, clear, amber, red or smoke lens or led.

wow some great options, I'm liking the black idea would probably dull the bling on the bike somewhat by replacing the all the lights with satin black ones, I would need to find a good alternative for the brake light though  but looking very promising, I like the look of the round sparto type.

At first I thought you were 1 of those riders that can't ride a bike w/o oodles of chrome on it.  If that's not the case, why don't you just paint your faux chrome with flat black paint?

Arizona wayne, I did consider that as a cheap option to buying new ones but I would still know its plastic, still worth doing though until I can find exactly what I want and I have some Matt black paint somewhere.
