Could you post a picture... I am thinking of doing the same - a picture may well tip the balance.
I hope this is a before and after picture of my recent 7" conversion. I'm a little shakey on the tools.........LeonardWell, there is obvisouly something I don't understand about inserting a picture........Leonard
is it easy to do??
Non-sealed beams have a separate headlight assembly that takes a little bulb in the back of the reflector. Sealed beams are one big bulb; reflector, lens and all. I've heard that the non-sealed beams are more prone to failure due to vibration; don't know if it's true. I installed a 7" sealed-beam Wagner, and the difference is astounding; like I'd been riding around with a flashlight taped to my handlebars. I work a 3rd shift, so light's real important to me.As Robb said, it looks way better than the goofy stock lamp, too.
Emmet, I love those panniers. I wish I could get those in the UK!Tom
It's OK - I've found them..... in our hosts' accessories section!
