That’s a kissing cousin to the 7” Bates motorcycle light.I love the cycle of life some of these Rat Rod Bike forum parts have. I got this light (along witht the set of fender skirts on this bike) in a trade with @Machine Age Victim about 8 years ago. I've never used it yet and as I opened it up to swap out the mounting bolt for something smaller, I remembered that this was a light that he had LED-ized years ago. I'll have to dig back and see if he documented it on one of his builds. Searching around it is a KD894 spotlight (that is what the handle is for up top).

You can see where MAV had cut the back of a sealed beam headlight for this.

I was surprised at how little corrosion there was in the cool little rubberized battery pack he had.

With some wishful thinking, I sprayed everything down with some CRC Contact Cleaner and put some new batteries in. Nothing lit up. But there is hope. The hard work is done.
