For some time I have been wondering if you night riders frequently go so far as to seek out period correct vintage battery or generator powered headlights. Like the vintage bikes, it seems to me that many of these lights are also artful, just plain more attractive than much of what is available today.. Several from the 50's and 60's still have that unmistakable deco flare, remaining late examples of machine age art. I remember that they made halogen bulbs in the early 70's for certain optical instruments, but cannot recall if they were used in bike lights that early. From the looking at ebay there must be quite an interest, as there are lots of offerings. For the short time I have been a listmember, I have not heard any discussion about lights. But I would not be surprised if it had been a subject in the past.
