At last we can get clear lights for our GL1800s. Chrome world are doing the back light (complete light replacements).



Trunk lights are $64, saddlebag ones are $69. Details at http://www.chromeworld.com
I didn't see front indicator replacements yet.

Me too. I wonder if these are the ones that Jan from Sweden was working on or if someone else beat him to the mark?

Werner, how did you order the lights? I just got a mail from Chromeworld saying they don't ship outside of the USA/Canada and that my credit card has not been debited.

I can't order the bits either. The transaction appears t go through and then you get the e-mail telling you that they don't ship outside US & Canada. I managed to find the small print on this after I'd wasted my time on it. Sod them, if one of us finds out where to get the lights elsewhere then we can just post the info here.

Sorry but you are both correct. I checked my e-mails only today and have the message declining to send the goods to me as I live outside the USA.

I have heard that Big Bike will be coming out with their own version that will have the Euro look on the bottom lights also, unlike the Wingleader's lights. :shock:

When I heard this and had the information verified, I cancelled my order that I had on the Wingleader lights. It will be worth the wait to get a better looking set. :D

I definitely will prefer that Bob. All of the 4 lights should be the similar style. I look forward to more information from you on this.

Werner:

I received this reply from Bike Bike when I first heard about them coming out with their own version of the "Euro Lights". This reply was dated August 24, 2004.

"Yes I have seen the clear "Euro Style" tail light lens from Drag Specialties. There is one problem though. The trunk lens' do not match the saddlebag lens' on Drag's parts.

We are about 60 days away from having matching trunk tail lights, saddlebag tail lights, & trunk- saddlebag side lights all with matching clear lens'. Your wish has come true. I have seen the sampletrunk and saddlebag side lights on a bike and they look great. These things take time, and good things come to those who wait. Thanks again for your interest. Ride safe."

I would like a set of them as well. They will look really good on the 1800. Surprizing that no-one started making them a couple of years back.

a full set of clear lights is just what we need for the GL1800, the clearalternatives seems to be the only company that is making clear turn signals for the front.

Hey 18eugene, you are 100% correct. The only problem is,:action: that Tobin in http://www.clearalternatives.com/index.html does not have a date when they will be ready for sale, :crying:but patience is a virtue,;) and they are only making them for the front at this time. :clapper:
