Looking for a headlight (w/o glass)

Till now I upgraded my Brutale's headlight with 2x Morimoto Bi-xenon projectors and some LED's, but now I have even better idea for DIY project.

The problem is that I don't want my bike sitting in garage till project see the daylight, so I need a headlight assembly (complete) but without glass.
I beleve that I can find it here, becouse it's much common problem that glass fell out and end-up in pieces - right?

Tried some search, even send some PM-a but no luck (no answer).
Does someone has it, and is willing to sell for a "reasonable" price, since it is almost useless without glass?

Actually the "new" DIY project would be visualy very similar to last one (2 x Bi-xenon are the max you can push inside oem housing). The main differences would be in projectors mounting plate so it can accommodate electronically auto-regulated beam height (just like in car with HID system) + horizontally placed LED's like on new Brute.

Other idea was to imitate BMW adaptive headlight, but it's far more complicated task with uncertain result.

But, first thing first - need headlight housing!!

I have a headlight housing with no glass, and I have no use for it. We are a long way from each other though, as I'm in New Zealand. If you can't find anything closer, let me know.

New Zealand is not THAT far away, just on the other side of the planet but even this is a good start

Oooo yeah .... I'm still looking for the headlight housing.

I've exchanged several PM with a member Black Duck, and in fact we already have all agreed but he's offline for more than a month now, so I'm afraid that this deal will not be realized so soon.

I hope we can make some deal in next few days/weeks?

BUMP
Am I cursed or what, whoever appears with information about housing, disappears from the forum after 1-2 posts
Btw, I had a "tiny little problem" with my B-750 (last year my engine blew) and therefore the project "dual bi-xenon headlight" was on hold, but in every bad has something good, so that my Brutale become Frankenstein with a donor heart from 910 and the whole project makes sense again.

However, the search is still going on - anyone ??
