Before I do I want to put Indian motorcycle fenders on an Arcimoto SRK. And a boat tail and Cyclopean headlight, like a '34 Ford commercial with LEDs.

It would be very similar to this, although it would not have the Coca Cola livery.

Those cyclecars of the interwar era are interesting to say the least. But it would look more proportional if it had twin headlamps instead of that single one (and maybe a mocking grille).

What's popular on full-dresser Harleys is three, with a big one in the middle.

I'm thinking about a tandem two-seater with a high-tailed stinger instead of that tail-dragger profile.

Funny how all those Hardley-Ablesons are allowed to run three headlights when it's clearly illegal according to MN Statute which limits motorcycles to two.

But then, Statutes also have muffler standards that are routinely ignored by operators and law enforcement.

It might refer to main headlights, not smaller auxiliary lights. And even though those lights fitted beside the central one are not too smaller at all, this might be the loophole that renders them legal.
