Ideas for LED mount.

I got 2 of these LEDs for cheap and i would like ideas on how I could mount them on my forks. They need a pipe or something to clamp to. Anyone have suggestions? they clamp perfectly to 7/8 handle bars so Im thinking somehow some way old hbars might do.

ideas?

Have you test fitted them and fired them up? I've purchased LED driving lights before too and was a bit disappointed in the actual light beam and what not.
Make sure that the light is of satisfaction befoer actually mounting it for disappointment man.
Lol. Happened to me on my car... got me pissed.

Yea I wanted the triangle of light effect also.

I installed amber LED truck marker lights on my SWmotech engine guards. The guards have a mount location for light.

Don't have a good pic right now but you can kind of see them in this one. They are pretty bright and I think amber is a good choice for the effect

Spec, or anyone else. I've been wanting to do the "triangle of light" also to be more conspicuous. I noticed yours were amber. Never thought about it but is there any benefit to that over white light?

Gray-haired riders donít get that way from pure luck.
