Turn Signals Light Bar For V-Star 1100

Hi, Just bought this light bar, and was very disappointed. It is plastic, not solid, looks like a toy
Seems like I do not have to expect quality for such price. I didn't know that. It's my mistake
I need your advise
I need something decent but not very expensive. Not plastic but metal with turn knob on it.
I have V star 1100 (2001)
Thanks!

It states right in the ad what it's made of.

Technical Specification
Material: Steel light bar,Plastic headlight housing,Plastic turn signals

Frankly, any set like that under $100 probably isn't going to be of quality. Hope you find what you are looking for.

I recently bought a Kuryakyn set ... a tad more than the one you bought but the quality is worth it.

But it's beautiful! I'm sure it looks great on your bike.
Perhaps would be better to find second hand one on eBay...

Remember the old adage; You Get What You Pay For!

But I do understand budgets and sometimes we pay for what want now maybe in hopes of something better in the future. Ride Safe!

You can look for one from early Royal Star, Road Star, and 650 V Star They all will work.

It's a lot of money for sure. I wrestled with spending that amount for quite a while (days) but I wanted something of good quality and not the "run of the mill" look. I'm very pleased with the product. The signal lights also work as running lights and I wired the passing lamps to a separate switch and are triggered via a relay. They are very bright and my main purpose for them is so oncoming traffic can see me better. I have a "Daymaker" LED headlight on order as well.
