Very much still a Bobber! And probably works much better than the stock 5 3/4 “ light.
I must admit that the fly screens are not my favorite, but understand the need for one in cold weather.

Hi - love the bike and rear bags. Did you use adhesive film on headlight or paint? Does it diminish strength of light beam?

Who cares what anyone else thinks? It's your Bobber. Looks great!

Can you see better? Do you like it better?.......answers are prob "Yes!" I think that headlight is "coming at you!" which I think has attitude and functionality.

I and others have the Motodemic LED headlight, and we all still have a Modern Classic, and/or Bobber.

As others have already said who cares Looks good to me mark !!
Couple of questions if I may
Which led bulb did you go with in the end ??
Where did the yellow film come from ??
How was the film fitting experience,glass looks flat until 6mm from the edge
Cheers
OBM

Some days it just isn't worth chewing through the restraints !!!!
