    I took the junk aftermarket headlight of my DL100o sidecar yesterday with the idea of refitting the original setup. What I found is that this isnt possible because the PO has cut the mounting bracket off the frame so I'm now looking for an alternative. The Trail-Tech 8" style appeals to me but they dont have a dipping option so they are no good. Has anybody run across anything similar that dips (LH)?

    Your imagination.
    Easily converted to a high/low H4 or an LED.

    This is the one I slapped onto the Tangerine Dream (Eric's K100'). The one fitted to the bike has a H4 high/low insert. The one between the outfit is a straight up spot light. The one on the nearside of the chair is a 5 3/4" H4 high/low with its own switch and relay.

    Your imagination is the only limit as to what you can do.

    weld the bracket back on?

    or

    fab up a new bracket?

    The Strom stock headlight assemblies with led bulbs are awesome. I run them this way on my dl1k solo.
