As Bear said I think you will find a side mount light and plate are illegal and will be a cop magnet. If you keep the plate there, expect to catch it on all sorts of things!

Thanks for the offer but the bars wouldn't look that good on my bike but I thought that they looked pretty good on yours.
I think they suit more the smaller and lighter type of bikes .
Anyway enjoy your new bars!

Painted the tins, chopped the fender and moved the shocks.
I already messed up the paint on the tank by spilling fuel on it so it'll have to be redone at some point sigh lol

Definitely a different looking bike... anybody who has painted their own bike (especially if with enamel) has probably had to look at the effects of spilled petrol!
