    The lens is not the issue, they are standard Lucas. The housing is Greeves and that is the difficult part to source - the Greeves Pathfinder has a smaller version.

    I could always use the Ranger style rear lamp holder

        Thanks Brian - interestingly the Gauntlet one looks like the main section of the Enduro one and then an ugly bit put on the end - very Greeves. I can't believe they would go to that much trouble for a prototype.
        I have actually made a card template for the parts so if I can get out of be sociable over Christmas () I might see what I can come up with.

        It would be interesting know whether they were shipped with the bikes or sourced out there - maybe someone knows?

          John it could be the LUCAS 917 Rear Lamp Code: 19044 - with a made up holder unless it was a Triumph/BSA etc one or part of one.

              Looking at the various pics, I would say they used Lucas parts wherever they could.

                Brian the lens on the Enduro and Ranger are both Lucas, it is the body which is made by Greeves and the difficult part to source. You can tell the Enduro part is made by Greeves as it is quite agricultural in it's design and production.

                  Mounting bracket rather than body. Is there not a drawing for it.

                    Here you go Tony, just to confirm what you already know (….!), as promised and further to my earlier post, I've managed to find another reference pic of an original one for you, this time with a bit more detail. Interestingly, it looks just like the one you posted above....

                    So...back to your original question, has anyone out there got one?

                    Hope you and Sarah have a great time in Almeria mate, take care.

                    Brian. (the other Brian.)

                      Hi Tony,

                      Had another thought re the possibility of drawings for the bracket....

                      If they exist and follow the usual Greeves practice, I'd guess there would be three to four required in total for the component parts. One for the main 'box' section, another for the lamp holder, another one for the number plate 'tab' (unless the later two items are made in one piece, so one for both), then a final 'with assembly' drawing showing the complete unit fully constructed, shown in both plan and elevation.

                      I know that at least you have your card templates to work with for now, but be nice to have the original specs to hand if available.

                      In the meantime, if I hear of any further leads I'll let you know for sure.

                      Brian.

                        Ok, Tony, I accept that. There's been a fair amount of water under the bridge since then what with my illness, operation etc. Just demonstrates that it genuinely is essential for me to stick with my system.

                        Just let me have the application and photos and I'll talk to Les - mind you he's probably spotted it on here already...
