^^^^ That was an awesome light. The original designers were ahead of their time when they built the inside glass/bezel/red dot set-up. It was made so not only did the retaining ring inside the bezel hold the glass in, but also directed the light from the sealed bulb area up into the red light above. It was all nicely integrated and solid. I wish I took pics of it, I am kinda a geek for things like that.
I just finished this one today. Going to a guy that I have already done business with. He wanted a taillight to match the S&M headlight he already got from me last year.
Haha. That meas a lot coming from You Rene. We'll get you squared away. I have a pretty crazy square/round light on my ironhead right now. It was fun to make. I made up a theoretical mini english wheel to smooth out the sides....
Just finished up a few more lights for some customers. One I built just to have ready. It is a SOLID copper light with an H4 hi/lo set up, 1/3 yellow lens, with a stainless trim ring. Will turn a nice rich copper color with time, like a penny. A good, solid light, and it's DOT legal.
I have no problem shipping overseas and do it often. Let me know if anything catches your eye. I have two lights I am building for some repeat clients, but I can start working on another really quick. Turnaround time from deposit to mailing averages just under 2 weeks.
Had a few guys asking about taillights lately. I have a bunch more than this, but this was what I pulled out real quick for a baseline. The ones above the coke can are made of steel, the ones below are made from solid brass, with a chrome cover. All of them will clean up well, and have glass lenses. They can all be made to work with standard bulbs or LED clusters, yet still retain their original appearance. I can finish them to be ready to bolt on and go, or sell them as 'builders' lights that you can finish, and help you all steps of the way.
If you see anything you like, give a holler and we can talk prices.
I have been trying to liquidate my stock of over 300 vintage lights and associated parts, so prices are better than ever.
Here is a light I finished for my friend Brian's Spartan Frameworks shovel head. It has a VL springer on it, so the mount is a little weird. It is a steel S&M light from the 40's, using a single 50w halogen 12v bulb. Bright and mellow light. The shell is steel, and the trim ring is nickel plated brass. The lens I used was a NOS 'Cats-Eye'. I really wish I would have kept this for my flathead build, but at least I get visitation rights.
Wow, awesome work. I just bought a 1980 Ironhead that I'm chopping up and I'm definitely going to be getting in touch with you in the future when I get to lights! Wrote down your website in my build spreadsheet I made! Looking forward to it!
