I'm impressed with Geoff's battery boxes cast from old original 6v batteries. Geoff is a great guy to deal with and his craftsmanship is top shelf. I was originally looking for an old battery to try to make a box myself. I'm glad I didn't find one and found Geoff in Oley instead. He did all the dirty work and is doing us all a favor at a great price.

Bob!

His Richardson replacement used a flawless original that I found in an alley a few blocks from home.

Side by side, they are identical, except his comes apart.

P.s. Could somebody post a picture of it? I have never seen the setup he makes.

Never heard of it before. I learn alot by reading posts here. I too would like to see a picture of them.

The only difference is that his comes apart.

I spoke with him at Rhinebeck last year and his boxes are really quite impressive. I'm just not sure that anyone has identified a tried and true replacement battery yet. If anyone has long-term success with one, please share.

200 plus shipping.

It appears that the 6 volt battery used for this set up is discontinued. It was Eagle Picher CF-6V18. Does anyone know of a replacement battery to fit in the box?

Yes it is, Eagle Pintcher would not sell to me direct and sent me to a place in Minnesota, price for 5 was 60 each found them thru Interstate at a better price!

I went to the Interstate web site and search for the SLA0980 came up empty.

I have one on the bench for the DL and thats what is on it, when the girl I deal with looks it up I think she just enters 0980.

If you are looking for the 6 volt EaglePicher Care free battery, I bought 1 from V-Twin a couple of months ago. Part # 53-0570.
