Glolite headlight reflectors

I have the large diameter Glolite headlights with the #1013 (10.125" lens diameter)lenses. I am missing the snap-in reflectors that are mounted inside and in front of the bulb to reflect the light toward the rear reflector. Does anyone have a set that they would like to part with? Thanks, Steve

Hey Steve;
Rare as hens teeth! Most people just discarded them. They were made of copper and gold plated. Yes gold plated and would give the light a yellow tint. I guess when most people changed their bulbs, they just tossed them out. It took me a number of years to find a set. When I got my car I had one, but then ended up with two. Maybe a club member has a set stashed away somewhere.

Yes. I am hoping to find a set. Hopefully someone will come forward with a set to purchase or know where I could get a set. My Golite headlights are slightly larger then the model D65 but should be a similar design.

Yes, exactly. I believe your headlights are the 9.875 diameter. Do you know if your bulb shields fit the 10.125" diameter Golite headlights?

Wayne, if you have more than one set I also could use some. If anyone else has some please let me know.

Re: Glolite headlight reflectors

Hey Wayne
Unless you have a couple more, I think you sold me the headlight bucket with one of the reflectors back around 2007. I remember wanting the piece but the old horse trader made me buy the whole light to get it. ha ha. Anyway that is the first one I obtained to match the one I had. Steve you might contact Lance as I purchased a set from him awhile back also. He had some stashed away in his parts. These are extremely hard to come buy as most people took them out and threw them away. They were gold plated and gave off a yellow tint to the lights. Larry F has a set of them on his model 75 that his Dad had. I'll keep my eyes open too!

Thanks for the reminder. If I can't find any, I'll know what happened. Haven't had a chance to dig into my stash yet.
