This Biltwell parts combo includes everything you need to replace the enormous Model-A style taillight on most aftermarket plate/taillight brackets. The footprint of our taillight is the same as the mounting surface on Model-A repops, but its scale and proportion looks much more at home on lean, stripped-down choppers.
Fitment: Like every other taillight in the Biltwell line, our assembly is a custom accessory, and does not retrofit to any stock H-D wiring harness or taillight bracket. If you have basic tools and customizing skills, installing the assembly on your Model-A style aftermarket taillight bracket is easy. For advanced chopper builders and home fabricators, we also offer two weld-on brackets and one bolt-on bracket to solve a variety of custom applications. See photos attached for finished assembly on a variety of Biltwell and aftermarket brackets.
Construction: CNC lathe-turned 6061 T-6 aluminum light housing; extra thick injection-molded polycarbonate plastic lens with 5-40 Phillips head mounting screws; die-cut rubber internal LED spacer gasket; custom 15-element LED board with two phases (brake light and running light) and three wires (ground, brake and running lights); two 1/4-20 button head Allen bolts for mounting on Biltwell custom fender bracket (sold separately) or existing Model-A style taillight/license plate brackets.
Details: The outside diameter of the alloy housing is just over 2-5/8 inches (67mm), and the red lens is an inch (35mm) smaller: just 1-5/8 inches. When illuminated the LED is easily visible at 100 meters, but due to its small size it may not pass safety inspection in your state or country of registration. This is a custom component for handcrafted motorcycles, so the DOT-worthiness of such vehicles is always dubious. If you’re looking for laser brightness from outer space, please consider another taillight. Our taillight is for guys who want to build the cleanest, leanest custom motorcycle possible.
