    The fender light with the LED just looks eerie, I love it.:thumbsup:

    It is kind of creepy but I like it. It also shows how the housing doesn't fit the fender perfectly! I have an idea on how to black out the light shining through the bottom of the housing.

    DUDE! I love them bars... I've been trying to decide what kind of bike to put them on for awhile... you made a good choice bro. Instant vintage? Use white cloth wrap, then weather it.

    Pickled, Peroxide or Painted Pick?
    I'm looking forward to find out your trick.

    Maybe all the above! I will probably sandblast them, then paint with the "rust" paint. They are aluminum so if I ever decide I want them shiny again, I will just strip the paint & polish them. They are super light also, unlike anything else on the bike!

    Worked a little on aging the bars tonight. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic but my camera bit the dust! Actually looks pretty cool in person.

    Dang near done! Need to scrape up a kick stand (the one on the floor is too short), or find a nice tree to lean it on.

    Can you give more info on what the cheap LEDs look like. I may have to make a run to Walgreens.
