Right. Think there's any chance of getting rid of those "horns" sticking out? I guess the only way would to be saw them off?

Wait, there are two brackets? I thought there would be just this one:

Yeah, not all are good shots but thanks anyway for uploading them! Better than nothing! As for the turn signals, they do have their own brackets indeed. They mount to the triple tree, right?

Yes the turn signals mount to the triple tree. There are also two female "studs" sticking out forward from the triple tree. That is where the headlight bracket bolts on.

Since I live in Europe, I need a headlamp that beams that light properly (center and to the right side). Which means, I need a headlamp for European market. Just like what EtniesFreak has.

Before I order one (it's not cheap), I would like to make sure that it's actually compatible with my bike.
Thank you for the additional information. Makes more sense now.
