I'm still watching, and still interested. Keep me posted.
I'm interested too... Looks like an excellent light pattern. Thanks.
Making good progress. The mounting bracket is finalized. In fact mine is mounted on my own bike and operational. I'm waiting for a few raw sample metal plates to arrive for a final evaluation before I send the order to the waterjet shop. They have a minium job order size, so I'm just making sure everything is how I wanted before I commit.
I'm also working on a hard polycarbonate lens protector that would be press fitted to the shield. Probably with some rubber or foam gasket around it.
Here is what it looks like on my bike. Don't mind the slight offset. The final bracket will have the light match the face plate.
Great work. Looks very factory and is a vast improvement over the oem light output
Put me on the list for 1 complete package.
Hellas over here in Aust are mucho $$$
Looks great man. Are you going to be painting these as well?
Will a 60mm fit at the bottom for the low beam?
I'm waiting for a shipment of sample materials (different types of plastics). I would say, it's easier if I can find a supply with a limited set of colors, so that no painting is needed.
I will have to check the size of the mounting holes. There is barely enough room (depth) to fit the 60mm low beam. If that's an option, I will drill the patterns and you can order your own 60mm light. It would also leave enough room around the lamp for cool shit like led ring lights...
Given that I've seen a couple 90mm LED headlamps, this would open up some interesting possibilities for the future.
Until those are affordable though and give the fact that my euro headlight is kinda cooked and cracked from the 2 55w HIDs the previous owner installed, I'm very interested in this project.
Hi, is this going to be a one run and done type deal, or are you going to put lots of extras together? I only ask because I'd really like to have this but am in severe lack of funds for it at the moment. Amazing work on this. It's the first of it's type that I think really looks good! :

Any ideas on pricing?
I don't know yet. I'm making many of the components by hand. so it's not hard to make more. But it probably will just be a one time thing because I can only ask the guy to cut the plates 10-15 pieces at a time. Right now I have enough interest to make one run.
No set final cost yet. But it would be the cheapest way for you to get twin lights.
Let's say with all the options, it would be around $350. You can skip the lens protector and few other things or get the lights yourself(Lights are about $140 retail+shipping)
Looks great! I'd be interested in getting your mounting plate and bezel if you sell them seperately.
Good to keep an open mind on this... you may be right Dutch is in the minority but he is correct and it is not subjective... just saying :)
I suppose you guys might like to know that jw speaker now do a DOT/ADR approved hi/low led projector light that's a direct swap for 90mm hella.
I haven't found a price yet but I reckon they won't be cheap.
Hella has a couple 90mm LED headlamps also but a very short search turned up prices around 500$.
Found a couple more 90mm headlamps from other manufacturers but i'm guessing the prices are similar.
For the time being, 2 decent 90mm halogen lights are fine for me :). I'll check in 1-2 years what LED lights fit in place of the halogen ones.
Might be nice if the pressed fit lens protector is removable. I think the LED light might need the extra cooling from a small gap around the len's opening.
Typed from my mobile, sorry for mistakes/typos/etc.
I am interested for a bit later on too. Nice work !
Please keep us posted!!
