Just replaced one of the lights in the nose of my Hannigan chair with a 10w LED spot beam.
Lots lower amperage draw and still puts out good light.

The first shot shows the low beam setting.
Two 55watt H7 bulbs in the bike, and one 10watt LED lamp on the sidecar.


The second shot is with the high beam on.
Three x 55watt H7 bulbs in the bike, one 55watt H3 bulb on the sidecar, and the 10watt LED lamp is the one on the outside corner of the sidecar.



I also have a modulator on the bike which flashes the center high beam of the bike during daylight hours, AND flashing LED tail-lights.
Being seen by others is a good thing...

I can tell you that the bracket probably failed because of the hole in the strap right at the point of the sharp bend. That created a stress riser and is a location for the start of fatigue cracking under prolonged vibrational stress.

When you make a new bracket use a solid strap of metal (no extra holes, ESPECIALLY in the bend zone) and make the bend with a larger radius to reduce any stress risers.

HTH.

This when I first got my rig. I'm in the process of putting some more lighting on my rig, with the help of a friend(I'm no good with wires). I'll post some pics once I finish painting the mounting bracket.
