Hi folks,

My SB7 headlight bulb holders are both damaged and I therefore need some replacements. So far I have not been able to find anything remotely similar, and although I may be able to source a replacement complete headlight unit and/or get a complete new bracket made up with a pair of new headlights, Id obviously prefer to simply acquire some replacements the damaged items.

Hi

There are 2 sizes of headlights used on the AF1 Sintesi 125. Early ones had larger headlights while later ones had smaller headlights. Not sure on the ones used on the 50.

All the best
