Will these fitt Trojan?
« on: January 27, 2013, 07:41:24 PM »
One of the last items I'm looking for are the rear lights. Might be a while before I find a nice original set. Does anyone here know if these items on ebay are the same size? It might be perfect to use untill I have correct ones!

They look about right, but I am not sure if they are right, Richard might be able to help! Looking forward to seeing your car on the road!

i do not pretend to be an expert by any stretch !  well they LOOK of correct design but maybe of the batch that were made too small !! amazingly the scale being too small by quite a bit . they look nice on Mopettas  ;)

IF they are incorrect size i think they're a bit dear at 90 odd euros a pair . IF correct size not badly priced i would have thought

Good point, Artist Formerly Known As Lightweight Dickie! Thomast, it might be worth you asking seller for measurements. If you like I could measure mine next week to let you know what they SHOULD be!

I think not. They have not got a shamfer on the longer edge with the screw as the originals. Nor have they the inaccurate shamfer of the 'normal' replicas which seem to run out at about £45 a throw but have the numberplate window fitted that a Treinkel would not. That said I have put the chrome version of the smaller light on a Treinkel where it does not look out of place with the correct sized rubber. The unit is both shorter, by about 5mm, and narrower on the base section by a considerable amount. It looks very lost on a Schmitt however. That said these units were at £15 each so cheap as chips.

As to manufacturer they seem to be a unit fitted to at least Mopeds/Scooters of some sort. Adler and the like? I think also a Scandinavian machine, so Husqvarna or something. So the tale they are a failed production might not be entirely true but there were a quantity, 1000 units? bought into the UK by error. I bought and sold the majority of them and have no stock left to speak of and these units are not the same but look similar.
