Hey guys just thought I would share some of the work that I have been doing over the last few days. Here are some before and after pictures that I took of "jry" high beam headlight faring. He wanted to seal off the light and make it a solid peice because of all the repair he would have to do the front end to get it back to stock and plus I think it makes it a little more unique. Anyway let me know what you guys think about the work.

I'm not implying that you dont know what you're doing. But I've done glass on plastic before, several times and it wont stick for long.

So are you turning stock plastics into track plastics?

haha...kinda just one side cuz when he laid down the bike it busted all the light housing supports up and its just cheaper to fix it this way rather than replacing all the brackets that hold the light in and buying a brand new front faring....so says him. Whatever I was just trying to help him out and thought I would share.

Does he have high and low beams on one side? How functional are his lights now? Just currious, not super familliar with the bike.

Nice work. It definitely gives the bike a unique look.

No that is his low beam light, but I think he is putting in a HID so it should do the job pretty well unless it goes out one night the he is SOL.

It looks like a pirate bike. You know with an eye patch.
