As you can see, the battery tray, switch and reflector are all that remain on this Silver King. Is this a candidate for an LED conversion or should I stick to restoring the original parts? There are battery trays available but I’m not sure they’ll fit since they’re all marketed to Schwinns.

That tray doesn’t look that bad. I’d clean the contacts, put a bulb in it, and put power to it

It’s relatively easy to modify a battery tray, and even add a horn unit. You can shorten them, relocate batteries elsewhere, etc. Once I bought a soldering set it changed everything for me.

Disregard. We got the light working. You’re right though, the ground needs to be cleaned but that’s it. The only part that needs to be replaced is the lens.
