the Vrod light housing is an excellent choice

bike looks killer - fab a solo seat, & figure out some where to stash a battery

Yea, it was never a question what headlight I would use. I'm a former V-Rod owner and aftermarket part manufacturer for it so I'm very familiar with that bike.

I'm using a modified original sub-frame so the battery will sit in it's original position with no problems. Along with the custom seat I'll be replacing all the stock rubber hoses with stainless steel braided lines.

Looks like you're on your way to a bad-ass bike! I can't wait to see the final product.

I absolutely love street fighters! Some of the dudes you see overseas go nuts over these bikes! Some of the sickest custom sportbikes I have seen have been streetfighters. Looks like this will probably be one of them! Keep it up.
