I am looking to put my turn signals in the frame ends. Does anyone make a
straight back turn signal light that I could mount out of each of the tail frame holes?
I'm doing a chop but want to keep the frame intact.

Those pics are perfect for the idea I want on my bike. Those mount right into the frame holes right? Can you tell me where you got them or did you make them yourself. I'm thinking if I drilled a hole on the inside of the red frame end tubes I could run the wires through there and keep it very clean. Appreciate the pics and infor FLSurfDog...

here's the link

i used the white ones and then got some cone shaped lenses from advance autoparts then cut and sanded them till they fit flush with the frame.....worked great cause i had the LEDs mounted so the base was flush with the frame and only the light was sticking out....this with the lens gives a decent angle on the light.

had to grind out the inside of the frame a bit to make them fit....bit of a squeeze. and i ran the wires through the frame...drilled a hole on each side under the seat then sealed it with some silicone.

here's the pic.....again ;D ;D ;D

Here's an option for the signals(almost at the end of the page).......... [thumbsup]

I'm just trying to understand what you're trying to do here. A chop without cutting the frame? Maybe I'm just missing something. I'd go with CA's Integrated LEDs. IMO frame-end blinkers are too small (less visible) for my peace of mind.

that is an great price versus led turnsignals! is it an easy install...ie. plug and play? do you need any other stuff (bare with me i don't understand electrical stuff at all)...does it require a relay or resistor or some other "r" word ;)?

thanks,
julie

edit: ooops...looks i found my answer is this thread- http://www.ducatimonster.org/smf/index.php?topic=66937.0

If that black box under the tailight is a light for the license plate, you can use a lens from a Buell Blast wich is clear underneath thus eliminating the need for it. I purchased mine at my local Harley dealer special order for $9.00 and it is a perfect fit. Nice write up on the turns. P.S. you're missing an upper right license plate bolt ;D
