Getting rid of the brick -finally

Looks cool Gazza, got links to the website?

Question 1. Are the light colours OK for AUS regulations?

Question 2. Are the mounts compatible with existing stuff on our bikes?

Question 3. Will you have to fit an "LED compatible" flasher relay?

Question 4. Bugger........forgot what I was going to ask.

Of all the hundreds of aftermarket rear lights Iíve seen or available that could or would fit the Rebel, none of them are uglier than the original Honda brick.

Designed and built to comply with multi national lighting and compliance regulations, not fashionable trends.

I think they did a good job to come up with a globally acceptable legal solution.

However, I do concede that it is FUGLY!

I would say it's a retro design, but OEM motorcycle lights haven't changed much since the 70's. Except for HD integrating the rear blinks with the brake light - I really like that design.
