Really cheap light bar

Someone please go ahead and tell me that these are junk, so that I can stop being tantalized by the idea that maybe, just maybe, they're not.

My wife says I always fall for the photos, on menus and ads, I guess she's right...

Not to encourage you, but I've spent $40 on way stupider things! Worst that's gonna happen is you may have to modify it to make it slightly better, or add higher quality lighting. But, I'm pretty sure you can't find a light bar by itself for just $40. Best outcome, you got a light bar with lights for $40

Honestly the pictures don't look too bad. But this concerns me a little, "Instructions and mounting hardware not included"!!!!

I've seen their mirrors and risers. Not bad but definitely not the quality of oem or a Kuryakyn part for instance. People that have them on their bikes like them but most of all they like the fact they didn't spend hundreds to get them. So if you don't like them you're not out much.

And here's a pic of my bike with them installed.

How easy was the install, and could you tell a big difference riding at night?
