1973 V7 Sport tail light
« on: March 01, 2015, 06:18:32 PM »
  Can anybody show me all possible tail lights that were offered on the V7 Sport in 1973? I have my uncles that he bought new, but the tail light is very different from the others I have seen.

Thanks

Should have been one like this:



But, could possibly be one similar to this:

my '72 has the second one above with the metal case & is original.

Searching on the web most parts suppliers list the first one (which may have been used until the original LeMans?) as V7 Sport.

If your uncles has the early version I'd say it's bang on. The original carries a CEV mark that is not present on the replacement part.
850 T3
850 LeMans killer goose or somesutch Iím told
850 LeMans
850 LeMans II (I've butchered it by fitting a round headlight & removing the front faring.)
SP1000 Stucchi
V11 Ballabio
V7 Sport (needs a little work)

 Ok, mine doesn't have either one pictured above. What's funny, in an early picture of the bike late 70s early 80s, that light was already on it. My Uncle did a lot of custom work to it, so I'm not surprised. I would like to change it to what is supposed to be there. Maybe I will take a pic of what's on it now.

  Does the early Eldorado have the same round CEV light and bracket as the V7 Sport?

Ok thanks, I was confused. I had thought that 73 got the round, and 74 got the square light. Although I think the round looks better.
