Hello everybody! I have a question. I am doing a restoration of an early "Balloon Tire" bicycle, a 1935 Colson Rover. I have this 1920s-30s Motobike headlight shown in the photographs I plan on wiring up {I also have the dry-cell telephone battery canister}. The lamp is unbranded. What I am unsure of, is how do you mount this light. What type of bracket is this, and where does it mount to? The bracket/hardware is articulating in nature, and some of it looks factory, and some looks makeshift. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks for reading!

Kinda looks like it's a car accessory, to clamp to a window or door frame.
Hi! I suppose that is certainly possible. I am inclined to think not though, as it is rather small, and it looks quite a bit different than a lot of lights used on 20's cars; like accessory cowl lights or spot lights, or things like that. This lamp, and its lens, appear more slightly built than early accessory car lamps from those days. I am pretty certain that it is in fact a 1920s bicycle electric lamp from its appearance, but the clamp is still puzzling. Thanks!
