Dremel the socket out. Install a replaceable bulb with socket. Epoxy, jb whatever. Make it (edited)

Yup, thats what I did. Take out the old burnt out bulb. Break off the element part and dremel it open a bit, goto the parts store and get a 1157 push in socket with pig tail. Wire it into the original harness push in the socket and away you go. I installed a led bulb into mine so it wouldnt blow at WOT operation but the light pattern at night sucks. I dont ride much at night so it doesn't bother me.

My phone's being cranky, but look up sealed beam conversion in the wiki. Treats has a halogen bulb you can use. Been doing my like this for awhile

That’s probably for the regular express. Urban is rectangular.

That referring to conversion kit (edited)

Second time I did it I just cut the plug side, broke the inner bulb and shook the glass out. I didn't bother taking off the front glass. It's kind of time consuming to get it off.

That's the bulb. Solder all the connections on (I don't worry that it seems to reverse high and low beam). Just seal it up with some kind of decent glue and you're good to go.
