    I want to fabricate a dual bracket for these lights but haven't seen them before. They have glass lenses and open bottoms. Anyone recognize these? dual lights1.jpg dual lights.jpg

    Kind of what I was thinking but seem a bit small. They're only about 4" long though so they'll be cool on a bike I think.

    Oops! I figured it out...sorry for the post. They're from a 1940 Chevy coupe. Still...they're gonna make cool dual bike lights when I'm done. There's screws in the top side so I think someone may have had them on a bike before.

    Unless someone added the screws to the top later, I think they might be old cab clearance lights, too. These plastic lenses below are from the modern LED version.

    I picked one of those up at a catch all Swap meet, I thought they were cab lights for a old truck. Not Sure . I sold mine to a friend at Scott’s swap meet in Texas, he thought they were cool also , he was going to put them on his rat rod
