Economical light bar

Custom fabracated (sounds better than home made) light bar out of 1/8" stainless. Cut to fit, then installed Mini Cooper running lights. These lights are 5 1/4 dia. I think the 4 1/2 lights might look better, but they work great...

I like it! I have 2 questions for you I'm sure you've been asked the first. Did you rejet? or do those restrict enough air. 2nd the lights look great but are they going to draw too much power? I'm presuming you checked into that.

Am experimenting with jets now mainly for the exhaust change. All the intake plumbing under the tank is still being used. The lights are supposed to pull 55w each. Haven't checked it other than that.

I think 55w each is a little much for non-highway use. I do like the lightbar. Simple and low profile. Nice job!!
