The Difference Between Solid And Plated Brass Headlights

BrassHeadlightsAdding a vintage touch to your bike will often lead you to “brass plate” your parts or buy some of the many brass plated ones available from aftermarket vendors. Disadvantage, polishing them will progressively remove the plating.

These 2 new headlights from Paughco are solid brass, meaning deep drawn from a solid sheet of solid brass, not just cheaply plated like many others on the market. That means you can polish them as often as you like or let them age into a vintage unpolished brass finish.

These two  5 ¾” lights come complete with a 12-volt sealed beam, red high beam indicator and bottom stud mount. Depending on your taste you can order the brass lights with either a chrome or black ring. Part #1300BRB features the black ring and #1300BRC comes with a chrome ring. Both versions retail for $184.95. At  775-246-5738

    Why not a brass bracket?

    Brass is nice, but a pain to maintain.

    Brass is genuinely cool.
