Rorut, mine go over the standard 'guards with no problem, and I have also used them between the guards and bar, but it's a bit of a faff as you have to make a hole for the bar and weights etc.  I don't believe the BBs are that much bigger and the Oxford muffs are pretty flexible.   Can you go to a bike shop and ask to offer one up to see if it's miles out or workable?

're the LEDs, I have some cheapo Chino ones fitted to the muffs a soldering iron top makes a good ziptie hole and they work really well (so much so that I have just added a switch to turn them off at night as the reflection off the madstad screen was distracting !).
If look at the tours topic on the Denmark and North Germany  thread there's a photo link to mine, though now I've got different drls on the muffs.  Pm me if you want more pics of info.

I would really appreciate some pictures, do you remember the model name? I think there is s couple of different oxfords
Thanks a lot!

Pretty sure they are Oxford Sports.
I'll take some photos and try to post them.

As promised previously.  Hopefully these photos will 1) load and 2) show how easy they are to fit.  I had previously cut  and screwed through the for a better fit, but you d this isn't really necessary,  so they just go over the handguards.  As I said earlier I've used these on a number bikes, which shows how strong they are.

Thanks a lot Steve, that looks great. And the price is also realistic

No problem Rorut,   I certainly think hand guards are the perfect location for DRLs.   
The only slight bugbear can be access to the indicator switch,  but tightening/ rearranging  fastening straps sorts that.
Good luck!
