If the mount of your Altrider rear rack looks like this, then it definitely will fit.





The light upgrade fits right above the existing light and below the factory plate under the factory rack. The Altrider rack sits on spacers I believe above the factory plate.





I plan on ordering the parts this Monday, so I will probably close this batch out then.


For the rest of y'all, I still need shipping information from the following inmates:

strider.deano
doxbike
bigtallguy
Ducken (2)
Too Tall
Johno33772
klrider99
framebinder

Once I have everything, I'll PM out my PayPal info. Thanks again everyone for all the support! This has energized me to follow through with my next little goodie that I want to build.

Exact dimensions?

Can't find the dimensions of this light. i'd like to have the info for planning.

Also, for installation, do we have to remove the OEM rack to access the wiring?

Thanks!

Yes, the factory rack does need to be uninstalled by removing the 4 retaining screws in the top. When you get it off, there is still a ledge of plastic above the factory light assembly. That ledge of plastic is part of the entire plastic underseat structure.

Here's a shot from the rear with the factory cover removed, showing the ledge.



Then the light assembly gets removed. I'll expound on that when I make up the instructions, but here's a shot with it taken out. You can see that upper ledge is a permanent part of the rear assembly.



The light has to be removed in order to facilitate getting my light wiring into place. Like I said, I'll post up a full detail on the installation shortly.

Finally, the light is 7/8" (22.2mm) tall x 4" (102mm) wide x 1 1/8" (28.6mm) deep. It is tapered in the rear so it tucks down into place.

I've had mine uninstalled for the past week since I was using it for photos and its been just dumping rain to boot. Had to run out tonight and it was warm and dry. Put the bike back together and am completely impressed with this at night. There is NO question I am getting seen nice and early.

Thanks for the support guys. Order going in tomorrow.

Everyone have a great week!

Latest update

I just got the word that the light assemblies will be delivered to me on Monday 11/19. They are delayed as the shipper was shut down for a few days while Sandy was visiting. I'll finish them that week and get them out on Black Friday!

Still waiting for payment from a last few. Thanks to all of you who took care of it. Have a great weekend!

Light update

OK everyone, I picked up the lights this afternoon. I'll start assembling them tomorrow and Wednesday and will get them all shipped out by Friday at the latest. I took Wednesday off from work to crank them out and get some Thanksgiving chores done. Hope you all have a great holiday!

As for everyone else who expressed an interest, I started a new group buy list. I'll keep everyone posted on how fast it grows.

Thanks very much for dedicating holiday time to this! I, for one, certainly don't expect it.
