Default suggestion for turn signals please

Hey everybody,
I'm putting one of those Custom Chrome Tombstone tail light conversion kits on my Road Couch and am looking for suggestions for turn signals that will compliment the look. I don't like that big wide bar very much.
One idea I was thinking about was just shortening the bars, bringing the turn signals in tighter and then putting visors on the lenses, or a french bezel kit.
Any other ideas? Something with smaller lights, a little more retro looking and of course, under 10 bucks. Kidding on the last part.

I put the shorter signal bar that is available from HD on mine with the rear bullet signal lights from a Screaming Eagle Roadking.

I like the newer style ones they put on the RK Customs.

The narrow chrome directional bar is 10 inches wide thats 3 inches shorter than stock. It runs around 40 bucks. Its hard to do much on the rear of a grocery gide because of the bags but what I just found while flipping through the book is a bullet rear turn signal kit it places the signals between the fender and the bags. Looks pretty good 129.95 in the new H-D catalog. I could get It for about 90 bucks if interested. Let me know Ill look it up. PG 423 at the top.

Just kidding about the grocery gide thats what we call my buddies because he's the one that always has to go get beer.

heh heh, grocery glide, that's beautiful. No one wants to own a bagger but they want us guys who have 'em to go on trips with them.
After we got to the cabin on our last trip up north last October, I went to the grocery store and brought back dinner and beer for 12 people. ;-)

I think those are the same as the SE ones that I used.

A friend of mine has this setup for sale for $80:

www.pbase.com/jmorton10/lights

This is the HD shorter rear signal bracket & two bullet lights from a 2003 Screaming Eagle RK. The lights are $79 each from HD & the bar is $46.

They are still available, I have them at my house(I took the pics for him). My buddy will probably put them on e-bay soon however.

It is a pretty cool looking setup & is in mint shape.
