Dual headlight identification

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...fvi%3D1&_rdc=1

Bike isn't my cup of tea, But man I dig the headlights. The small bates don't do it for me but these are sweet. It says its a "harris" conversion Ie never heard of it and wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction for something similar?

Thanks in advance.

That is an absolutely gorgeous Hornet. Actually, I like everything except the headlights. It says in the description they are Harris lights. They look like S3 lights to me, but I'm not a Triumph expert.

There is an 86 Harris F1 Z1-900 Turbo for sale up here. They want $17,500.

its funny we all like the same "platform" I guess you'd call it but have some seriously different taste in how the "finished" product should look.

I hate everything about it except the lights....

Mine is just the way I like it, been riding it with the gell and modified foams for a year now, but I'm about to play with it again just for kicks. I went from sore as hell after 1.5hrs riding to 4+ hrs before getting achy.

I try different shapes, different types of foams, and different covers. I got the seating position and angles right the first time thanks to the DIYseat site. This last time I used regular medium upholstry foam, and it made one heck of a difference from the crap Sargeant used. Yes...mine had been done by Sargeant once, but the seating position was aweful and painful, and the foam they used wasn't great either. I'm about to do it again in a week or so, I've got some new foams and cover materials coming, and a sewing machine at my neighbors....

Damn, I cant realy go without my bike for a while or I may let you take a crack at it since you've done it before... Im definitly gonna consider this. May get it done this coming up week. Id be fine with reusing the stock cover if I could get away with it. I wonder if I can buy the foam and gel somewhere local in the pinellas/tampa area? Shoot I may give it a whack tomorrow if I can get the stuff. Good post man, Im gonna have to look into that tomorrow when Im awake!
