Powell & Hanmer P&H original Small carbide acetylene front lamp for flat tank vintage veteran motorcycles.
The model number is 136.
This light is one of a number from a collection. They are all now going up for sale as I have no need for them.
This P & H front lamp is quite small. It would probably suit a Pioneer or early veteran lightweight motorcycle, such and a Levis or Douglas 2 3/4. I have quite a few these acetylene lamps but I’ve never seen one like this. It has a simple 3-bolt attachment, with a small (rear-facing) red lens. It has a very tiny ding in the left side as you face the lens / lamp. It would push out. The patina is lovely. You could polish it up a bit more as the nickel plating is dull. The lens appears to be original and free from cracks. The original reflector is OK too. It’s not shiny-new but it’s decent.
In short. It’s cute!
The lens diameter is 3″. The outer rim is 4″ diameter.
These little lamps are hard to find now.
Please see my selection of acetylene / carbide lamps. I have burners, front lamps and more rear ones.
