I've ridden many old and new bikes on the road and the old 7" Lucas 700 units seem fine to me, unless they're tarnished. The 30/24W 6V bulb was a bit dim though, just a bit.
The worst headlights are on some newer bikes. I remember a late 1990s CB500 twin being more or less unusable at night (and I had 500 dark miles in front of me at the time). Various sports bikes have bad lights too.
