Got my tiny turn signals in the mail yesterday.  As I had hoped, they threaded right into my headlight bolts which were tapped to accept the reflectors.  Drilled the bolts the rest of the way through, and just ran the wires directly into the headlight bucket!  Voila!  :)

Looks good!

thank you!  i know it's not much to look at right now, but i'm proud of the progress i've made.  it's really fun having a non-stock bike project. 

i'm also proud of the fact that i'm keeping expenses low on this build.  the goal is to make a pretty significant transformation, yet spend as little as possible.

so far, this is what I've got invested:
$300 - the bike
$28 - turn signals and tail light
$23 - superbike handlebars
$45 - new master cylinder/front brake (the stock one was utterly unsavable)
$10 - LED lights
$30 - 1981 cb750F peg mount brackets (in the mail right now)
$55 - caswell tank sealer

total of $191 so far!  everything else i've done has been from found materials in my garage or modification of stock parts from the bike.  the only other forseeable expenses I'll have are a new exhaust and new tires.  hopefully i get lucky and can find a used exhaust, but i'm not going cheap on the tires.
