It is a Lucas MT110. You can get replicas from the Czech boys which are so good you can't tell the difference from the originals.

There are also cheap Indian copies but they are rubbish quality compared to the Czech items and are not a faithful copy. Save your pennies for the good ones as Paul has recommended.

Also, the Czech lamps can also be ordered with dual filament if you'd like to have a stop lamp.

I have a Czech MT110 on my 1936 4G, with single filament bulb. I use a diode and resistor mounted in the wiring loom behind the rear mudguard stay so that I can use the bulb both as a stop lamp (direct wiring) and a tail lamp (via the resistor). You need the diode to prevent the side light coming on when you operate the stop light switch. It is a pain to do but it works reliably (the same set up has been on my RH500 (with an original MT110) for over 25 years) and the benefit - a single wire to the back of the MT110, as per original.

Many have doubted my sanity...............

It's probably the neatest way to do it. Nev
