Headlight Bucket

I need a black headlight bucket from a slash 2 or a single.

It's going on a pretty rough bike, I don't need a speedo, or other stuff, but wouldn't say no if you had a ring/bulb/reflector/lens with it.

Doesn't have to be pretty, just has to do it's job.

Open to offers, thanks!

Unique 1965/1977 Conversion

Old-style, Earles-forked BMW R60/2 road bike with 1977 R60/7 engine and many intelligent, well-executed upgrades. This bike is flawless, a lifetime rider or museum piece. Built by a factory-certified career BMW bike mechanic.

The builder, Dick Sullivan of Oakland, California, provided the following information. He neglects to mention that the bike comes with new-old-stock factory saddlebags. Much else -- too much to list -- is also NOS. Dick writes:

My goal in this restoration:

• To create a brand new 1965 R60/2 "continuation model." That is, to preserve the classic good looks of the sixties bikes but incorporate several modern features including an oil filter and electric start with the ability to add a sidecar.

• To produce a bike that someone could drive into any BMW shop in the world and have it be serviceable. This bike comprises almost totally BMW parts, and the wires are correctly color-coded to wiring diagram specs.
