Hello,
I have tried to look through old forums, and not much came up. Is there something new out there to replace a standard 6v headlight 25w to upgrade the light quality?

I see some halogen upgrades that you need to have the glass headlight so it doesn't melt.

Any ideas or recommendation?
Thanks

I had the same question. This is supposed to be a direct replacement

It is on back order now but David will email you when it returns to stock.
Just make sure you have an original style glass lens and not one of the plastic replacement ones. There is enough heat from the bulb to possibly damage a plastic lens.

Thank you exmayor. So did you replace it and see an "upgrade " on the quality of light?

Still waiting for carrier to pick my V 90 up at
V oodoo's in Seattle
Doing lots of anticipatory shopping while waiting.
Have email in to scooter marcato to be notified when the bulbs are off of backorder.
Have used 6 volt halogens in other vintage projects and they work well
