How do you mount a non stock headlight bracket to a VL Springer ??? Don’t know, never had a VL Springer before. Here’s my take on the task on this ‘balmy’ 40 deg. day.
The travel of the front leg shouldn’t interfere with the bracket. Again, shouldn’t.
Tapped the dampner hole at the bottom of the neck. Bent a piece of 1″ flat stock and drilled 2 holes. Bolted up the bracket and mounted the headlight. Will pop a small set screw on the bottom of the Spinger through the bracket to keep it from ‘drifting’ and will ’shape’ the bracket around the springs. voila
