WD RE 125cc electrical fittings


Recommended Posts

 Hi  anybody know where I can get hold of the correct Miller back light  and if anybody is making the correct electrical  connectors and how many I need I’ve tried Mr  Van Dorp  unfortunately he’s run  out and he’s not sure if he’s going to be  making any more I’ve managed to get hold of the correct light switch and some of the other bits and pieces  worst case scenario don’t know it’s right I have heard of some flying flea  being fitted Lucas back lights  usually depot level  when  being refitted if they couldn’t get hold of the Miller  I don’t know if this is right or not and does anybody have the measurements of whereabouts it should be fitted on the back Mud  guard

Here a picture of my original lamp, and an attempt of someone in the UK to make a replica, it was very expensive, and I was not impressed at all! am working on modifying these though.

Roy was making some very nice replicas, copied from my original. I have one on my Velo MAF below. I don't think he wants to make them now? Maybe the tube part is ok, which can be married to a Lucas base. Probably the lens and rim is too problematic?  Ron

Yes, he is way too bizzy right now, but I can have some lenses and rims made, that's not a problem, but the rest, the plastic lense, I don't have. Lucas bases are OK, but where to find them?

I guess the metal base could soon be formed (laser cut) from sheet steel. Then that leaves the lamp holder part. All in all quite a lot of work. Ron

 If you start to make any will you please  let me know meantime are any of the Lucas ones you’re making for sale ? I No it’s not hundred percent right  To fit a  Lucas  looks to be as close as I can get at the minute

I think all the Lucas ones are spoken for now, mostly for my own use, but will keep it in mind.

The one modified Miller one will be for sale, but not content with it, needs some fine tuning, send me your email, and I'll send some pictures.

Hello all, I made one for my WD/RE. When I got the bike it had a Lucas unit. So I set to on the lathe and made one from ally (easier to machine), well when I said I made 'one' I made a few that ended up in the bin before I was happy with one. The hardest bit was to repro the lens ring. This I did by cutting a groove in the end of the tube and profiling the end.

The lens was a piece of domed LED torch plastic cut to size painted red and glued in. I think it looks ok.
