Headlight socket and plug
« on: December 01, 2019, 12:36:58 PM »
Im looking for two things. One the fender mounted halftrack headlight socket which rests inside the Headlight itself, and two the plug that plugs into the socket. Anyone have leads for replacement ones? Thanks.

Try Paul Jacobs.  He has all the parts you need to rebuild the pedestal lights.

Steve, this is for the wiring. The plugs and sockets for the harley style headlight

Try Rod Shaver for the headlight sockets and for anything wiring for the halftrack use Vintage Wiring of Maine. That is where I get my stuff made.

Are they like the insert for the removeable headlight socket as shown in the photo below?
If so, these came from JR Parts.

I'm not familiar with the plug for the fender mount lights so just throwing this out there.

Here are the plugs that go into the back of the fender mounted headlights. These pop up on eBay from time to time or try Rod Shaver.
