Headlight for a 1995 Suzuki RM125 Dual Sport project
 
I need to finding a source for a headlight that is not BUTT ugly. Just a regular bucket and mounting brackets. It is going on a Xmas persent that I am building for a young fellow.

I have the new stator on its way now I need a headlight (35 watts) any leads are where to buy?

What kind of headlight? If you're looking for a classic round headlight, I used this one from Dime City. Fork clamp-style mounting brackets are also available there.

For a more dirtbike/dual-sport style headlight, I can't be as much help, but there seem to be a lot of them on eBay.

I am looking for a round headlight with bullet style bucket. The stuff I am seeing online with the plastic mini fairing is just ugly.

Headlights are one of those items which are expensive for no discernible reason. Dime City has the bullet-style headlights but they are about twice the price as the one I linked to. Still, not too bad in the grand scheme of things.

So your looking to put a cruiser style headlight on a dirtbike?

It'd look pretty horrible but it's your bike, probably the cheapest decently made ones I've seen are bikemaster units from tucker rocky, still looking at $100+

The one Slowmo linked would look a hundred times less out of place, and probably half to a third the price.

I would look at used headlights on e-bay. Find a bike with a headlight you like and start shopping .You will have to fab some mounts but not a big deal.

I got one off a ruckus for my Ninja dual sport build.

There are tons of simple headlights readily available for cheap.

Try Honda SL90/175 or any early UJM of small capacity.

You could search light kit for Honda TL trials bikes
