Does anybody know of a reasonable source for 6 volt sealed beam headlights. J&P doesn't have any and they don't know when they will........

Describe Reasonable.

Pobit on Ebay has some I think, but they go upwards of $30. You can also go with an H-4 converter unit and get 6 volt h-4 bulbs, but they usually need to be from the UK. You want 6 volt-30/30 watt or 35/35 watt


IF it isn't one thing, it's another.

Pobit's offering:



What you need is a 4020 sealed beam unit. Hard to find, but that is the part. Wagner was the last brand I could find.

if you live close to a rural area,there is usually a Tractor Supply store there and they often stock the 6 volt 5 3/4" headlight sealed beam bulbs.

I had been using the H4 6 volt bulbs in the 5 3/4" headlight on my RT1B and it does a great job for a 6 volt headlight.

it is the 35/35 watt H4 bulbs you can find on Ebay.

these guys are based in California.

from the same seller they have the H4 headlight that can be used but this one comes with a 60/55 watt 6 volt bulb. your magneto will not pull this well so ask the seller if they can substitute the 60/55 watt bulb for a 35/35 watt 6 volt bulb. I bet they can and it never hurts to ask.

These are a very good buy for NOS. Not advertised NOS but I bought one and it is. He only has 4 left.

Those are the real deal there with the proper original mounts. If you have a bike with that type of mount ring that is a better way to go, though expensive compared to a standard bulb. He is correct in that it is a good price for the NOS version of a hard to find part.

this part comes out of Indonesia and it is made to where you can use a standard 5 3/4" headlight on your 1968 to 1973 250 or 360 and possibly the 125/175 as well.

this is what I am using on my RT1B to mount a H4 headlight assembly. this works on sealed beam and non sealed beam 5 3/4" headlight assemblies.

Reasonable: ... a sense of value as opposed to a sense of worth ....
But thank you! I need several, but as it turns out one or two are the semi-sealed type so I need to do some more research.
