I think they call it a 7" reflector. X even though when you measure it it ain't quite that big......

I am working on a similar concept as I am adding twin retangular headlights to start. I am also in the process of fabricating a light bar with rectangular driving lights and turn signals. The overall theme of my new setup is to change as much as I can from round to square/retangular. I hope to finish the front end within the next few weeks and then start the rear with a custom luggage rack, turn signals that will match the front, custom sissy bar and possible brake lights.

The pictures below were taken very early in the fabricatng process. The headlight brackets were only primed at that time and I am considering having them chromed or powder coated during the off season along with the rear brackets. Good luck, Freeswilly. As great as the Vulcan 750, it is greater to make it more of an individual ride with some custom work.
