Ray, do you have any pics of the Australian delivered tail lights?

Thanks Ray....  8)

This one kinda looks like the one in the first photo, but it's just the lens.... no housing.

I like the one in the second photo (haven't seen those before!) Wish BS had put turn signals on the 350's.

That looks like a Homer 50 tail light lens, it is smaller but a slightly more rounded shape. It will however fit the bracket on the 50/90/100. I have done this on some of my bikes. Btw the 50/90/100 festoon bulb has 2 elements (stop & tail light), even harder to find in 6volt than the 50 lens. The Homer has 2 festoon bulbs. Also the  Homer tail light assembly is available from Richard, I think.

Yup, it says Homer right in the ad/listing, but I wasn't sure if it wasn't one of those parts that could be used on different models.

Hen's teeth is right!  ;D
