You will need to do your own set up. I'm in the process right now of designing a set. I'll use six inch, dual intensity, chrome strips on each so that there is minimal amp draw and mounn the stips just above the latches on the side bags and just below the joint, between the latches on the top trunk.

I'm going to all of them in red, dual intensity. Cost will be about 150 plus wire. I'm hooking them into the trailer signal control system I built under the rear of the seat.

Here's the LED unit link: http://www.cruisercustomizing.com/detail.cfm?model_id=0&Category_ID=5&manufacturer_ID=58&product_ID=6725&sblid_name=Signal_Dynamics_Universal_Light_Bar___inch_Chrome_w__Red_Lens

I have a parts bike in my yard that has the red turn signal covers on the saddlebags, and there is a box under the seat that is wired into the harness.

The bulbs are still single filament, so I would assume they are running lights / turn signal lights. Not extra brake lights.

I'll get some more information later today of who made the box.

It's a Priority Lights Safety Coupler by Sound Off Safety

Sounds like an older version of this:

Accessories made specifically for any of the older (20 years +) wings are probably not in production any longer. This would include things like the light bars that you'll see on some bikes that run around the trunk and bags, floor boards and heal/toe shifters, engine covers and so on.

As far as websites that specialize in older wing stuff there are a few. Here are a few I've found:
http://www.crescentmooncycles.com/
http://www.edsets.com/
http://www.jpcycles.com/
http://www.jcwhitney.com/motorcycle-parts-motorcycle-accessories/j3s2.jcwx
http://www.randakks.com/
http://wingstuff.com/index.php
http://vencowings.com/

You'll also find http://www.saber-cycle.com but they have a horrible reputation. Many including myself will not buy there.

If you're inclined to be creative I'd recommend shopping the bone yards for old light bars and retrofitting them with LEDs.

My Dad did the conversion years ago and had to basically fab the whole thing. The hardest part will be finding red lenses to replace the amber ones. I wanted to replace them because mine where a bit hazy but couldn't find replacements anywhere. Ended up restoring them instead.

Good luck and post pics if you decide to procede.

I made some for my 82 Aspy. I used regular side marker lights (for a trailer, only stand out about 1/4" when installed). Shaved the bulb mounting part off with a dremel tool, hot glued a led board from some mini fog lights on, the gasket for the light is thicker than the led board. mounted using two of the original holes, had to drill one more small one for mounting screw.

They may have trailer marker lights that you can do something with. I picked up LED motorcycle rear bulbs and replacement front marker/turn bulbs from them. I already had an LED compatible flasher unit.

I have no affiliation with them other than being a satisfied customer.

If I understand you want to change the lights on the rear . I used 6"oval LED park/turn lamps . So far no one has bothered me about having amber running lamps . I fabricated a new aluminum panel to mount the oval lamps . I think you might squeeze them into the original plastic part by not using the rubber mount gasket that comes with theoval LED .I also changed out the original tail/brake lamp with 2 LED tail/brake lamps from a trailer kit .

I have been debating on one of these
PN 01316 is for amber turns. 39.95 looks reasonable. Jay
