weldwizard: Ben, the headlight is of unknown origin from a junkyard. Real chrome plated parts have a thin copper coating between the base metal and the chrome. I spotted this old headlight and the chrome was flaking off, exposing the copper. I managed to carefully remove the rest of the chrome coating and polish up the copper. Very, very happy with that find and idea!

Ben Roten: Hey! What are those headlights and where did you get them!? Thanks

CornPed: Super rad build! Jake did so much custom work on this! It has awesome copper tubing for the wire tuck and copper fuel line. Gotta see it to believe it!
