Replaced the stock headlight with a larger bucket.  Not sure I like the look..need to take her outside to see - bike still on the lift.    I might go by the bike painter and see about changing the color to match the bike with similar accents.

I like it Bill.  And man I love the color of the bike.

    It's not bad, but if you left the bezel black and added a red pinstripe around it and then painted the bucket the same grey as the bike, it would really tie it together nicely.

    Thanks - kinda what I was thinking - paint the bucket to match the bike and add the red/black/gold stripes to accent.  Hoping to finish the other mods this week to get her back on the road.

      Wiped up a little puddle of oil under it...uh oh.  I am hoping it's the drain plug 'cuz that's where the little drip seems to be.

      I found a drip of oil under mine a couple of weeks ago.  I haven't ridden for a while.  Too hot and with COVID, just no desire to ride any where.

      I put a piece of cardboard under it and there's been no new drops. It may have been something I picked up on the bottom of the bike when I was riding or maybe I need to ride it to get it to drip again.  I need to get it in for an oil change too.
