I wanted to do this for a while so here it is. Added a Headdress to my bike but decided on the Classic illuminated version for 2 reasons.
It is larger than the Limited version and of course it lights up.
I added a red filter in front of led for reddish tone to head.. hope you don’t think I’m racist but I like things a little different than the rest. Please let me know what you think...

WOW racist. I would have never put that together. Honestly I was thinking of getting some translucent red plastic and putting it over the war bonnet and getting those car antlers and dressing up as Santa to enter our Christmas parade this year. Hope no one thinks that red on the war bonnet would be racist.

Looks great.Just a heads up to prevent more work down the road. Make sure you sealed the entry hole for the wiring. My 14 Vintage is rusting inside because Indian just ran the wire and did nothing to stop the water from entering.
My lighted face is an authentic reddish brown, but its from rust.

Did you install it yourself?

Yes I did, used some Jeld Weld on the bottom to keep the wiring nice and snug to fender. The connection is at rear of headlight ready to go, did it from inside of fairing without any part removed. Some zip ties and that’s all.

I painted the holes with rust paint and silicones.

Speaking of that I heard one of the funniest things ever the other day while doing sub work in a factory. A rather large lift drivers was talking to guys in the break room and said

"I'm trans-slim, I identify as skinny. I'm going to tell my doctor that next time he says I need to lose weight"

I about lost my shit
