    Two gas headlamps, and two tail lamps (one a 20th Century and one that looks like an unbranded copy of a 20th C model) came with my 21F and 23F projects. I'd like some help identifying the...

    You're right John.

    It looks to me too that the spring forks are also the earlier pattern with the shorter top springs. 1920 was, I believe, the first year of the longer top springs and therefore...
