Most owners agree that headlamp bulbs are problematical on these old bone shakers. and I do believe that the LUCAS brand name for these components changed hands many, many years ago.
I have to say that the reflector and focusing glass on these old tarts produces the worst head lamp know to mankind, but then they were designed for a very different world than we know today. For example, there were no large Kangaroos hopping out onto those quiet English roads and where the top speed was probably about 40MPH anyway.
In our world, to ride these old tarts at night, one would need take up some of the suggestions made here. As T120rv says here, a 45w/45w sealed halogen would fix virtually all the problems without introducing others. RR
