Default Good bye Pig Nose!

So..like I said, I've been playing around with my Shadow. Idecided to get rid of the pig nose and remove the rear turn signals as well. I got a curved license plate frame from cruisercustomizing and an integrated tailight/turn signal from clear alternatives with the smoked cover. check out the pix.

I'm looking for a left rear turn signal for my bike. PO scraped it on something and damaged it. PM me if you would like to sell it. Just need the left rear.
The new light looks great btw!

I have toyed with doing an integrated tailight on mine but am worried that the signals wont be visible enough especially in daylight. How do you like it.... do you think its bright enough?

I kept my tail light assemble but got rid of the reflector piece. I think the tail light ass is a lot better than a lot of other bikes brands. Look good though.

It's not. Trust me on this. I have been running same taillight for awhile and it washes out in the sunlight, mostly due to the angle that the leds sit at when installed.

I ended up installing Hyperlites in the stock rear turn signal location for augmentation.
