Headlight for Vetter SS fairing?

Post by Rocketman »



Was working on a wiring problem in the Vetter Windjammer SS fairing on my 77 GoldWing when the headlamp crashed to the cement. There is a label on the back that says Bosch 0 301 600 107. I think its what they call an H4 type headlight - its not a sealed beam but the kind where the bulb goes in the back. Anyone know where I can get a bulb like that. I Google'd the part number but it came up with places overseas.

Thanks,
Mike

If it's the same as the 1100 headlight, an old VW bus headlight is a direct replacement:

I emailed them last summer and asked if you could buy just one, instead of the pair that they sell for $44. Here's what I got in reply:
Thank you for your inquiry. We can sell you one for $24.95. You can place an
order with me through email or call our Customer Service Department at
215-234-8989 and tell them that I said so.
If I can be of further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.

JC Whitney also sells them, for possibly less, ie:
