if you can get it down to $100 shipped, I'd be in.

but more importantly what would be the lead time? $100 and a few weeks, maybe two months is chill. almost a year or better is most unchill. some people may have different thoughts on that, I'm just expressing mine.

I'd be up for paying ahead. I pay for a lot of stuff that takes 2 months in international shipping. 3 months starts to push it a but overall i'm just into this project. Next maybe make us some headlamp bezels <wink> Thank you for doing this!

I plan on making adapters to mount modern small motorcycle passing lights (the side lights for Harley Davidson and other brands) and a solution for the hard-to-find bezels

just an update on this project:

I have the hydraulic press and related equipment and someone working with me on creating the tooling to stamp these out. they're doing it as a favor so that's the part taking the longest.

I'm also working on electric conversion kits so may combine all of these efforts into one thing. I will post here when the doors are ready though.

I'm going to do a gofundme to help get this going asap since I keep running into delays getting help with creating the stamp (plus delays in life - stuff comes up and these unfunded projects get shoved to the back of the line).

chip in here to reserve a door for yourself: https://gofund.me/619aa298

thanks! still waiting on more than just a handful of people (I had over 20 confirmed interested when I first announced this). looking at perhaps summer for these to be stamped out... we'll see. I'll refund if it isn't looking like people want to pay.
