Re: Larger headlight fork

Hubba hubba, that's looking great! Around 30 years ago a couple young fellas pulled into the yard wondering if I had any old car radiators or brass I'd like to sell. I glanced at the load in their pickup, grabbed a couple old GM rads and told them I'd trade for that light. They happily agreed! Fast ...
