    Hey! I had a side mount taillamp on my '50 pan chop in the seventies. It was a '50 Cheby truck lamp on a homemade bracket, rubber mounted. Left the fender clean, and I liked it.

    Make your own, drill, hacksaw, file, and of course hammer.

    All right you get a special exemption from flailing windmill haymakers of doom.

    Gotta tuck it tight or it's a shin buster.

    One point is that the lamp was contemporary to the bike. I got it out of a junkyard back when junkyards had a lot of OLD stuff.

    Maybe have a look at the repro of Crocker, Sparto or Lucas tail light they are inexpensive and look timeless
    Like these?

    I do like the Crocker one, but I don't see how either of those would work on the Fat Bob fender I have, given the way it turns up at the end....

    The slice tail light may be a good choice .. ??



    Or perhaps the Cat Eye light .. ??



    Both of em will mount under the fender with a little work ...

    In my box of Panhead shit at Henry's there is a limp dick style tail light just hold it up on your fender and see what you think

    In the trash barrel at the shop I have a 14 pound billet side mount tail light that came on one of the shitboxes that I whored away from Davestune. He thought it was pretty cool so I guess that's all you need to know.
    dont mind this retard , he screws all the shit he works on, only to pay some dude who overcharges the shit out of him, I would to he is a yuppie.
    Its your Bike fuck who dont like what you want to do.
    P.S. dont ever invite BBQ to your home , that fat pig eats all ya food..............

    Yeah, I saw those too. Maybe just me, but to me those seem more out of place on this bike than the side bracket.... maybe it's because that's the kind of light/bracket I used to have on my Suzuki Intruder. I gag a little bit when I think of that same setup on this. Maybe I'll get a sissy bar and mount the light/plate on that....

    I think you're right, I spoke without considering your fender

    Stoked to pick it up tomorrow and get going on assembly! I ordered a few more odds and ends today, as well as exhaust pipes. Hopefully it will come together without too many hiccups now!
