    I used this bucket

    It does have little metal clips inside and they were not the easiest thing to get right but it's been holding solid ever since.

    There is an outer ring that bolts to the casing. There are spring clips that fasten the LED light to the ring. Clear instructions with pics come with it. IMO the one i sent you worked well for me.

    The only warning I have about it is, the wire for blade connector is backwards on the extension harness. I had to solder opposite ends to each end of that wire.

    I got this one from Amazon and the bolt allows you to tighten it really tight and grips the headlight casing very well:

    Awesome! I was having the same thoughts. It actually looks really great. Clean. I think I'll order similar lights but a little different. And keep the license plate on the back like yours.

    Originally I was intending to place a side license plate vertically but I found out in Arkansas, we have to post them horizontally. Also, it isn't quite as streamlines as I was hoping so I'll just keep it on the rear of the bike.

    These are the lights I'm looking at. Very similar.

    Thanks Michael, I replied in the facelift thread but I'll post here too. Basically just tore apart the old brick tail light and recycled the mounting bracket. I didn't buy anything new to do what I have, just took the old light brick off and then reused the mounting plate for the license plate.
