Anyone mount a headlight grill?

I know, it's a little poser-ish if you're not actually racing on a dirt track or the like, but hey we're all riding factory "bobbers" so why not...? Anyway, I had one on my old Guzzi and always liked the look of them -- they add a bit of rat-bike to the mix. Have not seen one yet for/on a bobber, and with the small headlight many standard non-brand ones will not fit. Just wonder if anyone has found one.

I had one on my previous bike (Honda Rebel) and ot looked good. I considered it for the Bobber but haven't seen one anywhere. Having now fitted the Triumph after market bezel I've discarded the idea for now but in my opinion I think it would look good on a bobber and easy enough to put on and take off depending on your mood.

This guy mounted one on his Bobber. Personally, I think his bike is a hot mess, but to each their own. Ride on!

I think the right grill could look good, but I wouldn't be willing to cut light output in any significant way.

As for that bike, I've seen it before as well and I couldn't agree more, though your pic doesn't do it justice. The dude certainly has passion and a point of view. Here is more blinged out goodness that is the Gold Toothed Bobber. The $ sign and spikes kill me every time.

It looks like you're in luck, the new 1200 Scrambler appears to have the same size headlight as the Bobber, so within a few months you should be able to buy an OEM Triumph grill.

Does it? I kept thinking the same thing I really like the Triumph one with the triangle in the middle but they didn’t make Bobber sized. I’m really hoping that comes out.

I like the looks of that one. Similar to my Guzzi, though it was in black..
