Installing Light Pods and strips

Hey Everyone, Im looking to get some light pods or strips put on my bike. Dose anyone know of a good place in the Spring/Houston area that can do this. Also can you give me some ideas as to how much it might cost? Im new at this an not looking to get robbed on pricing.

If we supply and install the components we stand behind them.

Depending on what you're looking to do, figure $225.00 - 300.00 parts and labor for good quality bike specific LED's with service connectors so you can remove your panels.

6 pods and 2 strips, each pod or strip has 6 led's each, so 48 total led's, which for most bikes is a bunch of light.

The kits are expandable so you can add more at any time.

You can even add cotntollers to make them flash or strobe.

We use stainless steel insulated service connectors so you can remove your body panels for service work.
