Unhappy Need new Headlight Housing - took a rock!

Need a new headlight housing, as a rock took out the glass! Hit just "perfectly" in the 1/16" gap between the glass protector and the Tupperware.

As Forrest would say, "It happens!"

Checked Beemer Boneyard, eBay, Amazon. Can't find a used one. If anyone has one, or knows where a brutha' can get one, please let me know! I know I'm probably grasping at straws; I've seen others post the same questions, with "less than perfect" results.

New OEM is $558.00! Ouch! There goes my Kontour Saddle budget out the window.....

Nothing like friends in all the right places! Got one for $320.00. shipped! Still a lot of money, but better than $558.00 plus tax....

I guess I am too late in the game.
I have my original one as my bike has the Ducati Design on it.
Glad you got what you needed!

Actually got it on eBay. Kept checking over the weekend, and then again right after I made the OP, I checked again, and bingo!
