1982 saddlebag and trunk lightabr

Saddlebag light bar
Saddlebag light bar

I am trying to find the manufacture of my lightbar. I've searched the internet and all I see are the lightbars with the red square type. My problem is the rightside lower light bar, the top two strings don't work. I am looking to either replace the bulbs, or the whole string. I am not sure how to remove them. They are riveted to the bar itself, can I remove the string, or does the the strip needs to be replaced. Can I just replace the bulbs? Any ideas, or suggestions would be appreciated.

I've never seen one like that before. I think you first have to determine why it's not working. Take out the bulb and check to see if there is power at the bulb socket. Work backwards until you do find power, then find out what's gone wrong in between there and where you don't have power. If you have power at all the sockets, then all you need to do is replace some bulbs.
