Hi folks. i have just started to put the head lights togeather.is there any documentation on this.its the cord that is glued on the reflector.has anyone got a pic or a diagram of it.
Many thanks Gerry (nz)
I would use the headlights that are mounted to a tie bar. Nothing is glued.
Here's a nice drawing by Martin Vowell showing the 1922-25 style headlamp. A '26 would have a shorter stalk mounted with two bolts to the fender while the 27's had the lamps mounted with one swiveling bolt each to a bar between the fenders.
The cord can be glued to the reflector for easier assembly so the cord stays in place while putting on the lens with rim.
