Title: Lucas flat-back headlight fixing washers. OIF 1971-72
Post by: A10 JWO on 14 November, 2017, 17:12:30
These headlights are fixed by wire mounts, either side of the wire are two large washers, the outer being chrome with two tags. Can I find new ones, no. Dragonfly don't even list the part number. This style is common to A65 and 70's Triumphs. Help please. Couldn't see any on ebay. Thanks.

They are Lucas part no. LU54525403 and you will need 4 of them. Lightning Spares supplied me with some when Brian and Chris were still running the show. All their stock was sold to Draganfly so good luck there. My recommendation would be to try all the spares dealers who advertise in The Star. Kidderminster Motorcycles 01562 66679 are particularly knowledgeable with OIF parts so would try them first.
Hope that helps
Chris
