Streetfighter R1?

so i'm thinking of somehow making my r1 into a temporary, street legal streetfighter. i don't have the money right now for a new headlight/bracket/fairings, so she's definately going to be naked for a while. my main problems at the moment are 1) how do i mount the computer? 2) what are my options with headlights? 3) what am i going to do about front turn signals? and 4) how am i going to conceal the wiring?

i think i'm just going to write off my twisted fairing bracket in the front, so that can be hacked away on. i'm trying to think of how to incorporate a round headlight into the front. i suppose there must be someway to fabricate a bracket that can mount to the existing fairing bracket. i will keep that bracket to mount the computer on i think, even though it's twisted, cutting off the rear-mirror mount "ears". i'm just kinda at a loss right now for ideas.... anybody done this sort of mod before?

If you were willing to spend the cash, you could easily get a streetfighter front headlight kit that holds the gauges...but that will cost money as well.... I still think you should take that bracket to a metal shop...get it fixed and straightened. Then mount any ole light in the front fairing... that way it will have the fairings with 2 big holes where the headlights were...
Just mount a piece of alum strapping or somin to connect that... it won't look good but at least you'll get it on... Or bust out some fiberglass and get a huffin high!

Oh and fix it with the fiberglass as well!
See even that... I really think a little fiberglass will get it good!
Oh yeah I would just carefully search on EBay like everyday and you'll find it for cheap!!
Ya even if you had to sport a multi colored bike till you could get it would still be good solid un cracked plastics.
