If I had that bike in that condition I would stand tall for the correct Rocket Ray and seat.

I grew up in the country in a bicycle bubble, so I ask stupid questions .
What it that on front fender? Is that the rocket ray? It looks like top opens from front, for batteries...what does it do?
Thanks

The thing on the fender is a cool machine that is designed to mount on the handlebars and be actuated with a button. The twin gun barrels go "IN" and "OUT" and I bet it once made shooting noise. There are 2 D cells inside. Now it makes a lot of grinding noise while it works, so I don't turn it on much. No sure who made it or what it was called. I like the thing and have been wanting to use it on something, but I dislike handle bar mounted things. I think the stem mounted light works well with the upside down bars and thought the red matched the tank accents pretty well.

A "Rocket Ray" is a chubby fender mount light that is a great classic look.

Hated the scout bars & stamped neck and liked the later Phantom/Cycletruck seat, went for some HD ( big spool & hudge spokes ) S7's with the 2'0 tires, love the way it looks and hung the og stuff in the garage so if I sell it will go back to stock! still looking for a orange ( I like my faded red/orange ) Rocket Ray!, made the bike look how it should have in 58!
