Making a Nekked Bike, headlight questions

Is there a bright foglight that doesn't cost the same amount as say a gsxr headlight I could use to make a high/low vertically stacked headlight?

I want something bright, preferably a clear lense.

I do have bi-xenon projection beams out of bimmers but Im looking for something easier to fiberglass around etc.

The katana is going to be turned into a street fighter of some sort.

I've got an extra upper with headlight from an 04/05 GSXR. Pretty sure the headlight assembly works and I have no need for it since I ride the track only. If you want it, I'd be willing to pull my upper and put the spare headlight assembly on to hook it up and try it out. Yours for free if it makes your life easier.

I gutted x3 projectors w the bi-flap. There isn't much left of them. The housings were damaged. So I literally just have the kmart chrome and concave projector lenses.

i'll consider that. not sure where the project is going. The katanas are ugly enough as is, nekkid might be even worse so I may be making some panels to kill my time to look more like a zzr1k. the headlight is a safety and usually a focal point so I wanted to do it right. Thanks for the offer, I'll consider that option.

make sure they are dot. and fog lights are going to suck cause of the super wide beam they put out. i know ive done it. maybe a six inch round light would be your best bet. those single round lights are timeless lol

Very good point; I didn't think about the wide and not focal foglights.

I may decide to work w the projection bi-xenon lenses. I can use one w the flap inside to double as single/highbeam. I would just need to seal the assembly from moisture.

The projectors out of a TSX are cheap and easy to find. PiAA driving lights are also nice and not too expensive.

it looks like a naked GS500 but meaner, sounds way better too.
