Custom lighting, i want input, pls vote!

Ok, this is a project that i hope to get done in the next year. I am wanting to go hid....no i dont want a drop in kit for h4, they suck and most the light ends up blinding oncomming traffic. I have several set ups and curious what ya'll would think would look best.

**background*** I plan in 5 or so years to finish my custom work. I will prolly rake the front 6 degs... install a custom air dam around the radiator, replace both fenders, custom tail and turns, and maybe redo the gauges with digitals. In short this will look similar to the honda rune.... low sporty and nice.

ok here are the options,
street fighter....side by side or stacked (bixenon hi/lo)
triangle in one housing (2bixenon hi/lo, 1 low)
single with fogs (1 low, 2 bixenon hi/low)


let me know... if there are any others too!!!

Wait a minute...you must be in your early 20's, am I correct? I can tell by the fact that you want to know what looks cool to us, not what looks cool to you.

Go with what you think is cool. Unless you plan to turn around and sell it.

well this is my first custom, so i am still learning. but i will take your advice cegodsey. Now that i think of it, it is my bike, and i want it to be a projection of me...... so does this mean i get to install a supercharger yet!!! lol....

I think i am gonna give the tripple a shot. but i will change it.... i will do a street fighter set up side by side, with a 3rd right where the horns are (horns will be replaced with seibel 'sp' units in the custom air dam)

as far as selling these.... i may make a drop in replacement that uses a projector, but then again maybe not since there are already so many out there.

oh i am 22, 23 in jan
