Looks pretty cool Gravity. You'll just have to hack and weld the high pipes until they fit.

Unfortunately, they won't work with the motocross fender. So, I've got to decide between the plastic fender and the high pipes.

I've gone with the fender for now. Here's how she looks currently:

I made an initial set for my XS650 which ended up thus;

Good for high water crossings!

Thanks!

If I cut 6" off the back of the fender, the'll fit just fine. I just don't know if I want to do that or keep the full length fender and low pipes.

Until I get mufflers or fab some baffles for high pipes, it'll likely stay how it is.

I'm not sure where I got the lights. I know that they are 55W halogens that have been sitting in my attic for years. I wanted a sort of Dakar look so that's why I went with the dual lights. The right light is pointed a little lower than the left - so lo beams is just the right and high beams is both.

A far as mounting? I picked up the two bolts that hold the lower cross member on and bolted a piece of angle aluminum to that. Then, just bolted the lights to that angle with their existing brackets.

Not very custom, but not stock either. 1968 CL450. The only mods are different handlebars, bobbed rear fender, different tail light, and custom pipes.

Thank you! I guess I should add the side badges are off a '74 (?). The 68 had stickers. I wouldn't want anyone to call me out on that!
