Tim , I went to a swapmeet yesterday and I found a prestine Fat Boy headlight. I have to figure out just how I'm going to mount it but that's no big deal . I know you were telling me that they make some nice headlight rings for these headlights . Where can I see some? I'm pretty sure this headlight is off a 1996 Fat Boy.

I think these are what you are looking for? Maybe you are looking for something fancier or different?

Jack,

The bottom ring is the one I had on my Fatboy....made a ton of difference. Let me know what you do for the mount.

Tim , here are some pictures of the Fat boy headlight finished . I of course started with a Harley Fat boy headlight , bought the frenched headlight ring from the Harley shop , the chrome mounting bracket from J+P cycle # 12-536 , and the chrome mounting block from J+P cycles # 31-4028 . The only other thing I had to do was put a 1/4" spacer between the bracket and the block. I think it turned out to be a real clean set up. If your headlight mounts the same as mine did to the front of the lower triple tree with 2 1/2" bolt center distance bracket , this set up should work on yours also .Thanks for the idea.

Jack




This is a pic of of the headlight mount I bought from J & P Cycles

The head lamp sure looks good. It fits so nice and should be the one that comes on our Boss's. I may get the same set up if I can find a good deal on the parts.

Talking about headlights. I'm looking for a Peterbuilt headlight like the one Jessie James used on that Peterbuilt trike. Anyone got a lead on one of those? I would like to get one installed before bike week. Thanks

Thanks Adrian, It is a much better quality bucket than the one that comes on the Boss. Also the screw for the headlight ring is right in front and very easy to get at if you need to.

Jack,

Damned thing looks great !! I'm looking for the parts as we speak.

Got to check the front end tomorrow and make sure mine mounts the same, but if not I'll have something made to work..
