Retro headlight?

Whats going on everyone. Wanted to see what you guys thought about a retro headlight. I plan to buy another stock headlight (so if anyone has one cheap let me know) and buy a projector. Sort of similar to the one in the gixxer motorcycles and have that put into the headlight inplace of the hi and low beam bulbs. Buddy of mine does these on cars so hes good at it. Price is around $100 for the projector, $135 for the headlight to be retroed and wired, and $xx for the headlight. Hid kit for single lense is like $40. $275 plus the cost of the headlight.

Well people who have spent money of the PnP HID kit would most likely enjoy this. I know since Im into cars people dont like the regular HID kits because there is no cutoff for the light and they just kind of shine. The projectors allow a cut off and span wider so you see more. Definatly something for people who do night riding would love to have.

If you have an HID kit already you just buy those projectors and ship your headlight to the shop and they custom fit the projectors into your headlight. You get the headlight back retored and your just plug it back in.
