In an effort to be "cool" have a newer style of blinkers. I've tried the ones above from "Cycle Ace" on e-bay. They looked "cool" to me. It ends there. The clip that holds the stud into the blinker pulls through. I had to replace these with stronger clips. The plastic lens and bulb cover a made of brittle plastic. The stuff is most unforging of the slightest cross treading. One bulb cover was cracked as received. Glued it with "emblem glue". And of course I cross threaded one on reassemble. Mark these down as a true "California bolt on" - some modifications required.

Don't just stand there, do something, even if it's wrong!
