    Love the pathfinder driving lights, but the combination of those with the factory orange turn signals was too busy. Had some custom LED turn signal lights made which wrap around the forks. The guys at Crockett Powersports in Chattanooga, TN made this possible. Let me know if anyone wants info on this project.

    Dude, that's FABULOUS. I'd like to hear ALL about this. Do they function as both? What does the turn indicator look like?

    Spill!

    See images attached. The mounting brackets for the pathfinder lights had to be refabbed and recoated, which the dealer took care of for $100.00 Otherwise the holes for the turn signals would still show on the mounting brackets.
    LED light strips came from “Custom Cycle Wiring”. Seth is the guy to talk to. He has all the product info since this is the first set of lights he’s done for Indian Chieftan front forks. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

    That's super slick. I'm concerned about the viewability angles of those blinkers. I was hoping there'd be turn signal halos in the passing lights, but that install is really really tight.

    My jealousy is showing.

    Other drivers rarely pay attention to bikes anyway, so what’s the difference ;)
    The LED lights are much brighter than they look on the photos. They wrap all the way around the forks so you can also see them from the side better than you could see the factory turn signals.
    No issues with visibility so far.

    What was the total "damage" for the build? How long w/o the bike? My interest is peaked.

    I was without the bike for only one day. The mounting brackets for the pathfinder driving lights had to be redone and recoated but that was all done without the bike. Thomas at Crockett Powersports in Chattanooga, TN can tell your Indian service techs exactly what they did to the mounting brackets to get rid of the holes for the factory turn signals.
    I can send Seth’s contact info at Custom Cycle Wiring for the LED strip lights or he’s easy to find on Facebook. Tell him Matthew referred you.
    All in, it was about $850 including all lights, parts and labor.
