Rear light set up

Love every thing about my Bobber EXCEPT the rear light arrangement. Don't want to have number plate on the side to the bike so would like a more attractive retro rear light and number plate arrange on the standard rear mudguard. Any suggestions very welcome !

Welcome to the forum!
I'd like to go for this; I had one of these on my '79 T140D Bonnie Special, back in the day. However, I rode with no indicators then so no idea yet what to do about them.

Cheers!

Message for Calthi - love what you have done to your Bobber. The small chrome indicators and chrome tailight are very nice details- can I ask where you got them from please ? Many thanks Lionel

I contacted British Customs a couple of months ago inquiring about their plans for releasing a tail assembly for the Bobber. They stated that by year end they'd release a Pan Tail light assembly for the Bobber similar to the one that they offer for the Street Twin:

From my experience, they tend to be late with their production promises. That said, they make great parts so I'm looking forward to seeing what they release.

I contacted British Customs again. They stated that their release of the tail assembly kit for the Bobber was delayed, but should be out shortly.

Once again, from my experience, they tend to be late with their production promises. That said, I'm still waiting to see what they release before going elsewhere.

Nice work. I looked at that light too. Very similar to my solution. Where are the turn signals?
