Not sure who makes them,it just says made in China.I bought them at Six Robblies in Seattle.They are the heaviest Duty lights I have ever seen,the body is 1/4" think plastic with cooling type ribs.They must weight 1 pound each,they are made for severe duty work trucks.They shine out about 40 feet,BUT there BRIGHT WHITE light gets everybodies attention !!!

Well, you asked for it:





Same rig, same sidecar-light, but the front light is different due to a little modification of the bike.

And of course, the army-girl is missing, but she would probably be freezing her high beems of in the first picture.

I took a tail light of the cruiser and got a clear lens for the front running light.
I pulled the white and replaced it w/ an amber.

Greg,

I have to ask, did you photo shop the picture ? Cannot believe the beach and sidecar walk are empty. Where is the beach, does it have a name ?

Regards,
Ron,

that it's just a picture for my cell phone and I did some extra HDR work in Photoshop just for fun and it won't be to everyone's taste. there was not removal of any people as the picture was probably taken a little after 7 o'clock in the morning when it was not the season.

that is the promenade on Clearwater Beach
approximately right here:

https://www.google.com/maps?q=clearw...,+Florida&z=21

that is PIER 60 in the background and you are looking north northeast in this image

I do love the Hannigan cars and as wanted to make a trip up there to visit them personally. Maybe this is the year to do that.

Thank you very much for including that image here as it is a very cool rig

Hi Greg,
Welcome back, hope the shoulder heals well & quickly.
Here's my K1RS with Hannigan. The driving & car lights are LED's from ADVMonster in the Vendors forum. The fork mounts are dimmed, come on full with the high beams. Car light is on full power. Upper fairing lights (not on) are Hella FF50's.

I think that you are well aware the tears come to my eyes when I see your rig as it was perhaps the greatest influence in the putting together of a sidecar rig with Jay @ DMC and the way it ended up looking... i'm thrilled to be back.... the best to the TWO OF YOU.... FOREVER, sir
