My Model T buddy had a set of these but we couldn't figure a good way to mount them on the 27 Roadster so the box just sat in his basement for years. Later on, when I decided to try to mount them on the car I found out he had given them away to someone who liked them. He was just that way. :-)

^^^^ A wise accessory, but they lack the coolness of a vintage unit

I totally agree. Simply a safety feature since I plan to carry paying passengers often.

There were several sets of those for sale at Harrah's Swap Meet about 1964. My friends John and Blair each bought a pair. These went on a 1929 REO Flying Cloud and a 1929 Erskine. I'm guessing they cost about $25 at the time.

The trouble with all the bike turn signals I've seen so far is that left and right, being contained in a single unit, are too close together.

Many of the T era lights are much less visible than modern ones.

Maybe the answer is to make my own.

The bike lights I bought point left or right in sequence like my 1969 Cougar tail lights.

My son installs street legal kits in side by sides for people in his shop , making a few extra bucks now and then. The turn signal system is made up of very small LED lights, so I asked him if we could put the same system on my 23 roadster. We used some parts that he had left over and I bought the rest that we needed for the project. I built the brackets, front and back in such a way that no holes were drilled in any sheet metal. I used the radiator mounting bolts in the front and 2 wood screws on each side of the trailing edge of the turtle deck to mount the brackets in the rear.. A small panel was made to hold the 3 way toggle switch and 2 small indicator lights on each side of the switch. It is mounted on the left side of the steering column with a single screw through the flange under the dash. I use a 12 volt lawnmower battery in a cigar box in the trunk, but 6 volt flashers are available at NAPA or other parts stores. All wiring is encased in black plastic tubing and it is a very clean installation that works well. The LED lights are small enough that they donít stand out on the car, yet can be easily seen when in use.
