    Regards James, putting it all together went better than I expected.

    One moment I was thinking that it was beyond my limited knowledge, another moment it all went smoothly..

    The circular shiny reflector part, that sits inside the Head light, came from a original WW2 Bosch Lamp that was on a rusty bicycle frame in Latvia!

    It was too big for what I needed, but it was easily cut to size and fitted perfectly inside the Light.

    So, all the parts are of original Bosch nature, including the bulbs.. which are Bosch .. from Halfords

    When I was inquiring about different parts, a few people had complete lights for sale at Hundreds of £££'s

    I think my one has loads of history behind it and I was delighted that I could get this artifact back up and running once more.

    I just love the "Bosch" name embossed on the front Cover.

    The front collar was too damaged when taken off originally, so I had to find another one to replace it..

    It was "found " in the good old US of A

    The "old one" was falling apart and we needed a stronger one to help keep the Light a bit more compact.

    It was only when we put it on the front, that we saw the bullet damage.

    I gave the top of my cupboard a good dusting, and lifted up the headlight..

    I'll tell you some thing - it's not half heavy - I'd forgotten how heavy it was

    I am looking for glass for such headlight.
    Best way for me is good new-made glass.

    Can anybody help or advice something about this?

    Thank you for any help.

    Keep looking for parts from period bicycles, a lot of them had the same size front Bosch headlamp on them.

    You just might get lucky..

    There is a glass for sale on facebook at the moment on a group called Sergey Colparts WW2 Collectibles parts.

    Try this link and scroll down. Do not know the price, there is more than just the glass.
