So I'm turning to my fellow hawkers out there to point me in the right direction!

WTF is this...well, I know what it is but where do I get another one? I'd just replace both of them.

I can get dimensions posted maybe tomorrow, if that'd help.

They look like genuine 70s Dalek indicators

Dalek Autopsy: The Dome Lights

A number of different styles were used, in both clear and amber versions. The early versions (right) were 'pointier' in design than the later versions. These early style lenses are still available, if you search around. They were produced by a company called Wipac. By the 1980s, the style was pretty much identical to those used today on the Land Rover Defender.

Ahhh wikipedia....

The Daleks i/ˈdɑːlɛks/ are a fictional extraterrestrial race of mutants principally portrayed in the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who.

Thats some trippy reading, man LOL maybe the Kaleds from planet Skaro can make me some new lens?

LOL Nanoo Nanoo

I have never seen a rear faring quite like that before. Maybe you could find some third party round indicators to fit.

Awesome, a Mork & Mindy reference! Wow, youngsters won't get that one haha
I'll give you young guys a hint, Robin Williams.
"Mork calling Orson, come in Orson..."

To the O.P., if you're feeling adventurious, you can make another lens by using the other good lens as a mold. Or, like mentioned above, just get two new lights.

I remember seeing that exact tail when perusing VTR1000.org, so maybe you have an "over the sea's" thing.

Hmmm...an 'overseas thing'...sounds expensive LOL
And I did see a light or two on fleabay that may work...something to the tune of 'grommet fastener' was mentioned. I shied away after that cause I was thinking of something threaded behind it to lock it in place.

I thought it was Mork from Ork? That's a fender elimination kit, or a undertail kit, did you try searching those phrases? It looks Euro.

Till you resolve the lens issue I would run an amber or orange bulb it might keep you from getting popped wile making a right.

It kinda looks like a 57 chevy tail. Discounting what it looks like, I would not want to be in traffic an night since the red tail lights are so shrouded you'd be invisible except for directly behind (and even then, barely).

And don't get me started on all the impending impacts when no one knows you are turning.

Yeah, I think I'll just knock out the other lens and just put in amber bulbs...

TBK I hardly use my signals...I use my hands. Because those brake lights are really f'n bright, believe it or not...I used superbrightleds.com LEDs in there...VERY intense with a flasher relay inline. problem was that once my brake light was on, it was close to impossible to even notice the signal light. So I just wave, and move quickly lol. AND their mounted so close together.

So I guess at this point I'll keep looking while getting some amber bulbs on order. Good lookin on all the replies, thanks guys!

Have you pulled the under tail off to see if there is a manufacture stamp on it or anything of the sort. Most companies don't make products with out any kind of signature or stamp of some sort even if it's on the inside.

Maybe it's just the angle seen in the picture, but it doesn't look to me like that undertail was made for the Shawk. It looks like the bottom edges of your rear cowl are splayed out to fit the undertail. If that's the case, of course, it'll be infinitly harder to find it by googling.

Oh an the funny thing about that (just looking inside)...

Well, last weekend I locked my key in my trunk, per se. I accidentally dropped it into the nice little bottle thingy on the underside of my sargent seat. strapped it on, locked it shut then away I....wait..oh [email protected]#k! So in my haste and frustration to free my key an ride (it was an awesome weekend here on the east coast last weekend) i began to drill out the lock itself. No f'n dice...its still stuck on there, that bastard. So that's my bigger problem now. Cant wait till i get pulled over an explain how my insurance and registration is locked under my seat...will I get out of a ticket? LOL
But for real I gotta replace the lens AND that damn lock.

Maybe its time for a new rear end look...

Good thing you dont have access to dynamite or a sledge hammer.

You are marching through life with NO spare bike key. I'd warn against that but looks like you already found out.

FYI, a good (really good) locksmith can pick the gas cap, get the numeric code and make you a new bike key using a computer.

No ya looney. You take your fuel tank to them and BOOM, your new key. No housecalls required.

Makes less sparks than your method too.

The undertail came out of France. I put one on mine. But I have not been able to find the manufacture in a couple of years.

smokinjoe thats old skool man! all you gotta do now is remove the ignition lock and printed on the inside is a serial number. Give that to this guy on fleabay- BAM! new keys made to match. Just takes a couple days. I always wondered why people would steal a MC...Then I learned it was THAT easy...

An France, huh? Well SOB...But yeah Stixx I'm with you, I couldnt find anything either. I've come to grips with the whole retrofit idea at this point.
