Man that bike's beautiful. The PD looks waaay better without that awful orange seat.

I welded a few tabs on my crashbars to mount Hella driving lights. They light up well but I've have some problems with blowing bulbs when I wreck. It happens more often than you'd think

I don't recommend mounting the lights this low. They don't point down on the road well enough. Ripples in the asphalt become 40' sections of shadow that can hide anything. Mounting them higher up like on the roo bar that Toaster Tan shows is a much better idea.
