Solar and Hine-Watt Lighting

The Solar headlights were very popular with teens Harley, Indian, Excelsior, etc. riders of the day and there were many variants.

The Hine – Watt Carbide cannisters were fare less common and are quite rare nowadays. This model B fits to the frame front down tube or sometimes even the left side rear fork tube. ┬áMost cannisters, like for example the Prestolites, are fitted horizontally across the handlebars but this H-W unit, at only 8″ high, will mount away from the bars giving a nice clean look with just the horn up top.
