Hello all,

Can you tell me about this taillight? I've seen it so far with two R12's?



This is not factory fitted

This is not factory fitted R12, possibly from a vehicle? But as prev said, during the war with shortages in parts supply, you will see
other reflectors used.

Another example on a P series too

This is the third example I've seen on P series frames?

Bracket different too?

It seems strange that both examples I've seen include different brackets to the mudguard too? I can understand if the lamp were different to the normal R12 lamp and fixed using the standard R12 number plate but whole bracket and lamp is different and both seem period?

These are not what was fitted in the factory.
