Tombstone tail light?

Has anyone mounted a tombstone tail light to their Shark?

Oldbie, if You're mechanically and electrically inclined I am sure that it can be done.
I believe it would require drilling holes in Your fender and having a bracket behind the fender to mount it to.
You would also have to tap into Your brake light wiring to get it to work properly.
Best of Luck.

Here's a couple pics I found of a bagger with the tombstone light. Not bad, but looks better on the Deluxe imo

^ I'm guessing that is an older one with a centre taillight already and swapped out the square one with the tombstone.

The one i installed on my friends low rider had to have a ground added to it before the blinkers would work right. No ground in the wiring harness or the one i put on there was defective.

If you do this, go for the LED one on the new Softail Deluxe. The new Deluxe is the most complete modern retro out of the lineup. If I had a conditioned garage I would consider one.

That looks nice. My RGU has the oval-ish light now, I am wondering about fender curvature and tombstone lamp curvature being compatible. I don’t mind drilling some holes but I don’t want to do body work and paint.
