LED Lighting On Newly Acquired 1973 TR7RV

Cheshire classic bikes do a pos earth LED If I remember correctly it is circa £27.00.
Paul Goff also has some interesting LED lighting
Post #5 from:-
Standard fitting on most 1973 British bikes was a bulb base and lens/reflector ... known as British Pre Focus; ...
Paul Goff
LED board which he says works in the Triumph tail light.
Replaces standard bulb holder and reflector as well as bulb.

Replacing bulb only, ask if Motorcycle LED Bulb Stop / Tail Light 12v BAY15D White LED's Double Pin Fitting will work in standard tail light?
i find tbe original BPF headlights completely adequate for pushing my motorcycle around in a darkened garage.
Riding for only 246 years? Man, you got a ways to go . . .
If you gents were to use your motorcycles in the way they were intended to be used this discussion would not be necessary. I refer to the author’s closing comment.

A Treatise on the Importance of Smoke by Joseph Lucas

Positive ground depends on proper circuit functioning, which is the transmission of negative ions by retention of the visible spectral manifestation known as "smoke". Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work. We know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of an electrical circuit, it stops working. This can be verified repeatedly through empirical testing. For example, if one places a copper bar across the terminals of a battery, prodigious quantities of smoke are liberated and the battery shortly ceases to function. In addition, if one observes smoke escaping from an electrical component such as a Lucas voltage regulator, it will also be observed that the component no longer functions. The logic is elementary and inescapable!

The function of the wiring harness is to conduct the smoke from one device to another. When the wiring springs a leak and lets all the smoke out of the system, nothing works afterward.

Starter motors were considered unsuitable for British motorcycles for some time largely because they consumed large quantities of
smoke, requiring very unsightly large wires.

It has been reported that Lucas electrical components are possibly more prone to electrical leakage than their Bosch, Japanese or American counterparts. Experts point out that this is because Lucas is British, and all things British leak. British engines leak oil, British shock absorbers, hydraulic forks and disk brake systems leak fluid, British tires leak air and British Intelligence leaks national defence secrets. Therefore, it follows that British electrical systems must leak smoke. Once again, the logic is clear and inescapable.

In conclusion, the basic concept of transmission of electrical energy in the form of smoke provides a logical explanation of the mysteries of electrical components - especially British units manufactured by Joseph Lucas, Ltd.

"A gentleman does not motor about after dark."

Joseph Lucas (1842 - 1903)

I needs me some o' that wire harness smoke . . . just in case! One never knows . . .
