Wanted: Clean Amber & Red Lucas Reflector period-correct set for 1974 850 Commando Roadster.
I have a pair of amber reflectors. The bezels need some spiffing up, but the plastic is intact.
Would you be able to email photos? Email is email@example.com
I can do that today.
I have stock of NOS amber ones, but am also looking for some red ones for some resto's
My amber ones are not perfect , I re zinc plated a couple a while ago to freshen them up and that seemed
successful. Red ones to the OP first.
Red reflectors for a '74.....do you speak of the reflectors on the sides of a 917 tail light lens?
Sorry I can't help. Do you have a 917 without the reflectors?
Oops! I got mixed up and thought red reflectors mounted on the rear. I didn't realize the red lens has built-in reflectors. I've reexamined the rear mount and realize the holes I thought red reflectors would be mounted in are actually for the turn signals!
Okay, my amber reflectors are on their way. Through my ignorance, I have now discovered I don't need red reflectors as the tail light has them built it. Thanks everyone for your consideration!
Is it true that 917's came sans reflectors in England as they weren't required? I have a NOS 917 without reflectors and in my search for Lucas reflectors someone provided that information.
There were two versions of 917 tail lamp lens (and two tail lamp assemblies).
Listed in the parts books:
06-8056 (Lucas part 54584930) Lens
06-8058 (Lucas 54585314) Lens, Germany/Italy
54585314 appears to be the one without the side reflectors.
It's amazing how much good information you can get around here by saying the wrong thing.
Thanks for that.
Package will go in the mail today.
