I run a Unity. One that used to be a hand held spot light . all I had to do was machine the knob for the back. Imho I think it's a great looking light . run it !

I have used a back-up light off an International Harvester. Really sweet look, but you outrun the light at 40mph.

Looks good and you got a good deal - I would run it. If you have some time do an eBay search for GUIDE ANTIQUE or GUIDE LIGHT the mfgr. that used to do all the GM (and other mfgrs) headlights, taillights, backup and spots - cool stuff.

I used one for a while on my last trump and I kept it for my new project. You might want to change the bulb, cause it is a spot light, and all you get is a thin light straight ahead, can't see anything on the sides of the road at 55 mph.

Unity can provide the correct parts needed to hold a standard bulb. You'll want to replace the spring "clips" holding the bulb in for sure. I used an 05 factory bulb that's clear and mimicks the spotlight look.

I know Rockabilly Jay is runnin an old spotlight but not sure if it is a unity...maybe an older one. I'll check that issue of the Horse that has his sweet pan in it. I did get a good deal...I do alot of hunting for what my wife calls junk and I have a shitton of stuff that will eventually make it on to one of my projects. All hail the junk collectors.

Gorilla,
In my case, my buddy Randy built the bike, so it was his idea...I think he mentioned it was off of an old ambulance...I'm thinking of remounting it though...Probably pull it up and in, closer to the trees...?..

Gracias..
