I have the 90mm Amerisport on the '74 and 60mm Amerisport on the GT5, those are super low profile and surprisingly good light for such a small unit. Of course LED technology has come along in leaps and bounds in recent years which opens up a World of opportunity around custom lighting with superb light output.

The bucket does require modifying on the front, but you could retain the parts for welding back together at a later date if so inclined.

The smaller lights so so much better than the 7in lights I am very tempted to make the conversion.

I'd love to know the process

Two comments: there are a few home-made low-rise rectangular conversions around that use only the low beam (or high beam) bulb of a std 4-headlight system from the '80s. Looks nice but limits your safe speed after dark. There's no law that demands you have high AND low beams, only that if you do, they be aimed properly.

And some modern bulbs use plastic lenses. These are slightly lighter than glass, but turn yellow after a year or so, locking you into constant polishing to restore function. Too much work for me even with the (small) weight savings. Suggest you stick to the vendor systems rather than trying to save a buck by DIY.
