1910’s-1920’s King of the Road Motorcycle carbide acetylene headlamp with clamps as shown.
It would suit a patina machine as it is. I’m sure that the dinks could be pressed out though if you want to restore it.
For now, it has a few dents as shown in the pics and a crack to the glass.
The hinge and clasp are fine. It’s a little different to the other Lucas King of the Road carbide acetylene headlamps that I have. If you look at the top of the lamp and just between the rim and the chimney, you will see a row of holes. Those appear to be part of the design. There is another small hole near these on its own.
I have a few Lucas King of the Road rear lamps for sale and one or two carbide burners. Please see my other items.

Collection: If you don’t want it shipped, I have plenty of space. If you can’t collect for a while, it’s not a problem. However, I will need to be paid very soon after the sale. Thanks.
Payment: Good old fashioned money on collection is preferred. I can accept payment through PayPal or by bank transfer as well.
Import Taxes: Please note that IMPORT DUTIES are not something I can control. If you are buying from outside the UK, there is a chance that you will have to pay import taxes. Import taxes vary from country to country. If there are charges to pay, it is the buyer’s responsibility to research the cost and pay the duties. The price that you see on my advert is for the item and not the item plus whatever taxes might be due.
