I fitted a white reflector under the glass of my front lamp
to give it a new purpose.(couldn't source a battery so no good as a light).. What do you think?

There was a article written up on one of the larger Raleigh Chopper websites and it tells how to make up a working battery with modern batteries and a bit of bridge wiring available at Radio shack to make these old Eveready British/ Pifco lamps still usable. The Raleigh Chopper devotees prize these lights and the article tells you how to make up a battery kit.

Don't remember the exact web site but I'm sure it's still up on the net.

I love these lights especially the black enamel ones from the 1940's
