    Default 37 spotlights

    What markings should I be looking for on correct spotlamps for my 37 ULH? I know they're Guide but that's about it. Palmers book doesn't say.

    '37 would have the very hard to find "Little Beauty" spotlights. The new Guide Deluxe appeared in '38.

    Harley used Motolamps from 30 to 37
    wwag has some of these https://www.wwag.com/cgi-bin/WebObje...sh&page=!29755 these are made in Poland, some JD owners have said their JD parts are crap, these may be better, don't know.
    Replicant has or is working on Motolamps reproductions, check with them http://www.replicantmetals.com/news.html
    Originals are rare, beat up and very expensive.

    Howdy chaps,

    Restored pair of little beauties at Davenport on a table this year, right side, back by the west entrance, $2,500, went quickly to a Knuckle owner delighted to get them.

    What's really hard to find is the five piece interlocking clamp that goes with the Little Beauty and also the Deluxe rear view mirror. Been looking for some of these for years.

    Howdy sir,

    Here’s an original catalogue listing, distinctive for the small rectangular handles on back presumably to align them to illuminate that impending threat (deer) or damsel sashaying down the sidewalk while underway. They are just smaller in diameter than what became later to be the standard Indian/HD spots of the day. These were being sold when spotlights still had exposed reflectors with no body and thus heralding in a new era of style.



    Edit: here are multiple images of a pair affixed to a garage find Chief, yes, stems shorter, have seen a variety of mounting methods as other spotlights brackets readily adapted to these that is why it’s become hard to find a catalogue pair.
