I have a cracked taillight lens on my '74 CB450, and was going to replace it but always liked the look of the smaller taillight on the earlier CB450s and CL77 scramblers. From pictures it appears that the bracket on the earlier models is smaller. Has anyone ever changed the taillight bracket/mount for an earlier model to run the smaller light? If so what all was involved in doing this?

The holes on the smaller tail light lens assembly (the lens and the metal back plate) don't quite line up with the later fender mount. Its close enough to make it work though, i have the smaller lens assembly on my 360 fender mount, works fine.

My wife's 450 came with the "Lucas" style light and plate mount.. my other 450 has that BIG HONK'n rectangular monster..
I installed a LED in hers to illuminate better... it looks nicer in my opinion

This is my setup, that is a 70-71 tail light for a 450 on a 550f mount, which is the same as the 72-74 mounts. Fits fine, don't believe I did anything to it to make it fit either. The 550 mount is chrome, looks better than the painted one.
