Lucas DU42 pre-1947 domed glass vintage motorcycle headlight 6-1/2″


Lucas DU42 pre-1947 domed glass vintage motorcycle headlight, 6-1/2″.

I have had this a long time. It came to me from a friend who bought a 1938 Triumph Tiger 80. This was fitted to the motorcycle and he wanted an earlier flat glass Lucas lamp with a brass cone.

I believe the headlight is original. However, I am not convinced that the Lucas switch and ammeter are original. The main cone has been heavily painted, so I can’t be sure that this is a DU42. It just has all of the features of one. Consequently, I will let it go for the price of a “lookalike”. It may even be a “lookalike”.

It comes as you see it. With 2 correct stays and 2 funny little flat chrome things. It has the wiring as it was when my friend removed it from his Triumph T80.

6 1/2″ headlamp unit with painted and chrome rim, complete with lighting and charging switch (U39) panel and ammeter, equivalent to the Lucas DU42 model.

The DU42 was widely used on many motorcycle brands, pre 1947, when the MU42 was introduced.
