1967 7" Headlight Wanted

Post by quaffmeister » Mon May 20, 2019 6:50 am

The B44 restoration continues at a tectonic pace.
I am now looking for a 7" headlight unit, the one with the ammeter, switch and the one off kilter hi-beam idiot light.
These may have been used on the 250s as well but possibly not, given the amount of one year, one model specific parts that seem to have been produced.
Cheers
Brian.

You had it made especially for you? I think it'll probably be cheaper for me to get my one stripped and rechromed.

Not so much specially made as they spin shells for L F Harris, They had the pattern for the piercing but don't use it as a production piece, so, effectively it was a one off piercing.
