Headlight rings
« on: May 01, 2013, 12:15:08 PM »

Yeah I saw those,  thanks.  Looked like a great option... Until I noticed that they could take 6 weeks to get here

I just ordered the one off of eBay, from India. It was $30 for both rings and clips, with expedited shipping. It says it'll take 4-6 days to get here. I think it ended uo being $18 for the rings and $12 for shipping. Not bad at all if they work.

Seems like that a lot with the Indian stuff, shipping is about equal to the cost but it's still very inexpensive.

He needs both rings that are offered by the Indian company. The second adapts the ring to the casquette, the the headlight ring itself attaches to the first one. Headlight rings are available all over the US. Any well stocked vintage Brit bike shop will have those. The adapter is tougher to come by. NFG Has them but, I think they only sell the set.

Oh well, already have the outer ring coming my way I guess.  Now just need to find the inner ring in the us.

MANY of the 7" reflectors are deeper than the stock light. I bought the whole inner/outer set, but my 7" reflector would have been to tight a fit so I couldn't use it. I was forced to use the thicker/deeper original inside ring by cutting all the tabs out of it. That was the charm, with a little tweaking I got fine results. See below...
Best Wishes, Craig McClure
