    nice build, now you need some full bike pics

    I'm interested in the "OPT7 LED Headlight bulb", was it a direct fit and would you mind posting some pictures of the light pattern?

    I would love to see a photo of the full bike to see what all these beautiful accessories look like all together.

    Drop in for the LED, but you will have to finagle it in. The bulb base extends further into the housing than stock, so you have to arrange the various connectors in the headlight housing to make it fit. I also had to remove the thin plastic disc that was in the housing.

    How do you find the spread of light on the road from the LED. I tried a similar product and found that the light (while greater in volume) was more blotchy too. Didn't look all that nice from the riders point of view.

    PS I asked about the LED on the Facebook group!

    Hi Andres,

    I think the best way to answer your question is with video. I'll upload a YouTube clip soon.

    In the meantime, here are more pics of the complete bike and the latest additions (Please excuse the quality, iPhone camera):
