I'm in the process of returning my 71 Roadsters tail lamp to stock. I've had a modified aluminum one on but want to put the stock fiberglass one back on. Ordered a new housing # 06-1122 and bracket 062038 from Old Britts. I have several cracked/broken housings and an old beat up bracket and trial fitted them to see how things go. Looks like nothing wants to line up quite right and I can see the reason for the broken housings. I know I can't tell much till I have new undamaged parts in hand, but is this a particular sore spot on these bikes? I've seen a few housings at swap meets and on Ebay but they all seem to have the same damage, a stress crack in the spine where it passes over the frame loop and cracks at the base of the lamp unit itself. Also, is there supposed to be any welting between the fender and housing?
