darryl, you made my day...i couldn't stop laughing!

oh man, that's just scary! seriously be afraid, be very afraid scary. somehow, i get the distinct impression that is isn't something left over from the factory prototypes!

though i wouldn't mind going for a spin on the rig in the background..

Well I spent about an hour yesterday looking at pics , I was getting all years and I thought I was saving them to look at them later only to find nothing there ,.....then last night I spent an hour and a half just trying to remember how I got onto the site and nothing worked at all :cry ... must need some Germaic logic perhaps

Hi Me again sorry to take up space :oops: But there are more requests

I see in the parts book there are two different batteries, one for the tea cup type head lamp and one for the saucepan type, the one for the teacup lamp , page 25 part num. 2835 appears to have a regulator and isolation switch on the side, and the nical platted brass wound flexable conduit plugs in the bottom. this is what I appear to have .... the only thing is that although I have the regulator and its box,the battery box to which it was attached has long ago rusted away , does any one have ony info photos or dimentions of this unit.

Also sorry to be a pain I would love some dimentions for the key that goes into the headlamp as its the only way to select the two different globes for "country' and 'city' running also off and on....I havent yet seen any for sale....


Kind regards peter G
