New headlight

I put an led headlight in my street rod.
Here are before an after pics. It was very easy. The original headlight had a drl but the new one does not. I don't really know why it had the extra bulb since the headlight came on any way.

It is a little too cold for me to take it out tonight but next time I ride it home from work it will be dark and I hope it is an improvement. If anybody is interested I will post a link only set me back 50 bucks.

Nice! One of my future mods. The stock light leads little to be desired.

I used one of the extra wires from the "DRL" to power the Harley Emblem on mine.

I just installad a Wisamic 5 3/4" off of Amazon for about $52.00 it fit great and I didn't have to cut any wires (park light bulb).It's an improvement over stock and costs less than the H-D LED Headlight lifetime is about 50,000 hours.

I am surprised Harley did not make a Wiring Adapter. To keep from having to cut off the Plug for the "DRL" as Only the Positive side was needed.

Just got home and I can say money well spent. So much brighter and clearer than stock.
