There are slightly different 700ss light units due to changes over the years. They should all fit but I know at least the Lucas logo changed in the late 60's. I have some Lucas catalogs so if you know the year and model I can find the part number or it can just be found online. I have one in the Matchless G3 with "24 hours at LeMans" on the glass.

Thanks. That sounds right. They had the dates molded in the glass and the LUCAS was different depending on the year. I need on for a '67 - '68 P11.

What should be molded into the lens is a six (later, eight) digit part number in a vertical line.
According to the Lucas list for that period the P11 light unit (lens and reflector) was part 516798 [Edit] however, it appears that the lens part number may not be the same as the light unit part number although they are one piece.
