The headlight with the Gen/Oil lights in them were never used on an FL of any type, they are for K-Model and early Sportster.
The FL headlight is plain on the back and the Gen/Oil lights are in the dash!

Robbie,

I think that he's looking for the glass lenses..... that goes in the dash...

I did not see anything about a headlight in this post.

Anyway.........

Try this site, they may be able to help. I have gotten many parts from JW Boon.

In his original posts he refers to the headlight. Headlights only had lenses for the models I mentioned. He posted in multiple threads and apparently has edited some but not all.

CaptMike,
Just look at any K-Model or '57-'58 Sporty. there are actually two versions, the earlier has the lights mounted lower. Same basic shell as Hydra-Glide light.

Furthermore i am looking for a "guide" marked front headlight.

The second one has a "buy it now" or make offer.

Why would it cost $6+ for shipping something you can put in an envelope for the price of a postage stamp? RIP!
