Night Light Suggestions

Need decent light to fit oversize handle bars on my new Lemond Sarthe. Bonty Race Lite bar I believe. I have a couple Cateye lights but the mounts are too small. Think a 32 mm would fit but the Cateye version that will fit a 32 only comes in a small 90 watt lamp. Any suggestions welcome.

I got my LBS to take the oversized handlebars off my bicycle and replace them with regular sized handlebars. Now I can use normal mounts for my lights computer and everything.

Bought a Beral HB mount light for $5 (close out) from my LBS a few years ago. Stuck a couple of 4Ahr Nicad D-Cells and a 2.4V (3w) halogen bulb in it. It was awsome. Should've bought the company and sold em for $100.00 each.
I'd be rich.
