    I seem to recall seeing this on this forum - but i could be wrong.
    Its an Aussie bike and original owner had sold it. I just want to find out some details as to the rear mods.

    They are VERY cheap chinese light units in a fancy shell. Really CRAP hardware. Basically they are a twin H3 bulb unit with a FOG beam (that really isn't) and a Driving beam that is terrible. I bought a set for my LandRover and they were - simply - useless. And nothing like water resistant. Lasted about 6 weeks - glass cracked on one and the other went in the bin with it. If you use 55W H3 bulbs they are going to get VERY BLOODY HOT.

    I really like the look
    Rear seat integrated with grab bar, tire-hugging fenders.
    Like the mufflers also

    It was for sale 3 or 4 years ago. Sydney I think. I’ll give you a call if I can recall anything about it. We (several of us) certainly commented on it at the time. Could take a while to pull it out of the memory bank.......

    I’m pretty sure I sent a pic of it to Anthony as a suggestion (maybe posted here), so it was probably not long after he unveiled the build. That could help with timing. I assume that’s why you’re interested now. ;)
