Solid Brass 5 ¾” Headlights

BrassHeadlightsThe gold-like appearance of brass (a metal alloy made of copper and zinc) has a retro appeal fitting well with many new old school type custom bikes.

These 5 ¾” headlights feature a housing deep drawn from a sheet of solid brass, not simply plated like others on the market. It implies that brass will tarnish for a more vintage look, or stay shiny if you polish it on a regular basis.

Each light comes complete with a 12-volt sealed beam, red high beam indicator and bottom stud mount.

Depending on your taste you can order the brass lights with either a chrome or black ring. Part #1300BRB features the black ring and #1300BRC comes with a chrome ring.

Both versions retail for $221.95. At Paughco or call 775-246-5738

    Nice. Paughco does many sweet looking retro parts along with its huge range of pipes, frames, forks and so on. If you are ever near Carson City NV it’s worth dropping and and having a look at this impressive facility.

    Apparently these aren’t clear coated. Too bad – don’t need something else to maintain. They make tarnish sound like a feature – must have been lawyers in an earlier life.

    Just a hint to hdrider: You can shoot some rattle can clear, either gloss or flat, over the brass prior to installation and it won’t tarnish. Either enamel or lacquer will work. A couple of coats of good wax and a yearly reapplication and you should be good for the life of the bike. I have used this method on brass parts of all kinds for years. If you want to get a certain “patina” just let the part age and then apply the clear when you get the look you want to stop the oxidation at that point. Quick, easy and cheap. Three of my favorite things! Well there is that sex, booze, rock and roll thing too, but………..

    Anyone who’s ever tried to clean up an old brass desk lamp knows it’s easier to put clear on than take it off, so it makes a lot of sense to sell them in the raw and let folks decide what/how they’ll use them.
