Summit Racing website lists sealed beam Wagner 7" round headlight (manufacture part number DH6024) for $11.95.  They also showed a DH6024TV for $15.95.  I guess TV stands for True View.  Any info if one is better than other ?

Just about any auto parts store sells then too.
I like to use parts you can pick up just about anywhere.

I just installed a Sylvania H6024 Xtravision in lieu of my Tribar.  I finally have usable lights on my Bullet! I've been battling H4 bulbs for months and couldn't get anything to work. Sure glad to have that last little issue resolved on the RE, though. I was definitely tired of not having adequate lights.

I just wish it did a better job of lighting things up for those rare occasions when I do ride in the dark.

Does your new Lucas 7" headlamp light up road surface better than OEM 5&3/4 inch that was orginally on your G5 ?

No.

It does look great though.
At the Saturday car show a BSA and a old Triumph showed up and both of them had Lucas headlights like mine.
I thought, "Hee, hee!  MY RE is just as authentic in the lighting department as your bike and overall, it's more dependable.  Hee, hee, hee."

I think now that I've modified it to point a bit higher I can live with it.  I'll just have to make a point to keep my speeds down. :)

My 7" is a Sylvania, and yes, it lights up the road much better than the original.
This is the first light I've gotten to light up the road at all.

Thanks for the tips, gents!
My 7" kit and Eyebrow went smoothly and I love it!
Rather than have a homeless person for the holidays, I decided to stick with ham.

I recently installed my 7" kit and visor and it went in perfectly. The sealed beam is an Indian one (Minda?) and is considerably better than the OEM which was the same brand.
