yore right on the button BED, 3O bucks, heck, that is almost to cheap to try and make the stuff yore-self. by the time you purchase halogen light bulbs and the parts to assemble it AND the time, this is almost a plug & play system

thanks for the link.

my opinion only, valid where prohibited, for official abuse only.

I'm far from a Speedway promoter, but this one works and works well.

The other upside - it uses a common headlight bulb available at any auto parts store. Even sealed beams have to be ordered anymore, so it's nice to have something that will get you right back on the road.
I'm the dirty dozen for the price of one...

I too wanted to run some modern bulbs with the stock look. I thought about the speedway conversion kit, but by the time I pay the exchange, duty, shipping, it's a hassle getting stuff into Canada sometimes.....

So, I did it myself. I ground off the original bulb holder on the back of the reflector, and then opened the hole up just a tad until the halogen bulb fit. Then I took some "bulk spring", tightened one end until I had a nice bolt hole size, and cut it off at just the right length to hold the bulb tight in between the bucket and the reflector. The spring bolts into the bucket as seen the picture. It did take me a couple of hours of screwing around, but that seems to be the one thing I'm good at.....
