One of the headlight reflectors on my newly acquired Augusta is under size and lacks the outer rim.
On the left the wrong 'un with no rim, 168mm O/D and 68mm deep - this one one was held in place with tape.
One the right the correct one , 188m mm O/D and 80mm deep which fit closely to the glass and headlamp rim.



There is an oddity in that both have a hole for the sidelight to shine through but which is not needed as the festoon type bulb is mounted on the main bulb holder fitting and shines through the central hole with no need for the smaller hole in the reflector. Has anyone got a spare reflector to match the one on the right or a pair which I might buy please?

I have a plan B which is to make a flanged ring to adapt the smaller reflector and have made a prototype in aluminium before making the real thing in brass. However before getting the existing reflectors re-silvered I'd like try to find a proper one.

Hello Mike,

I do have 2 original reflectors you can have. One of them is good with a couple of tiny dents, not visible when installed and the other one no dents but needs resilvering. Reflectors are silverplated.

I do have 2 headlamps , complete in good order, which I had on my Augusta for decades. They are slightly larger in diameter and have a protruding glas. Of interest is that the Bosch lights are in a Lucas housing (no joke)

I hope that helps

Thanks to both for such a quick response - job sorted thanks to Karl, whose reflectors are identical to the better of the two I have Smiley
