Brand new product for 2014!
This 19 LED array is the brightest 6 volt stop and tail light unit available and provides excellent illumination of the Lucas 679 style of rear light fitted to many classic motorcycles and cars produced in the 1950s and 60s. It is compatible with both positive and negative earth electrical systems with internal circuitry to automatically adapt to the motorcycle’s polarity.
It is a dual intensity lamp which means that all of the LEDs illuminate for the tail light function and then they all become even brighter when the brake is applied. This gives excellent illumination of the rear lamp with a clear difference between the tail and stop light functions.
The light unit is comprised of a circular array of 19 bright LEDs. We have two different versions available – one with red LEDs and one with white LEDs. The red LED version gives a slightly brighter tail light which is a rich red colour, however the number plate illumination is less visible. The white LED version provides better number plate illumination, however the tail light is a little less bright (as the red lens filters out some of the non-red light) and tends to make the Lucas 679 lamps look a little more pink than red. We offer both colours so you can choose which is best for your application, but we normally recommend the red LED version.
The LED has the standard BAY15D dual contact offset pin base which is sometimes also known as the 1157 fitment. It has been tried and tested installed inside a Lucas 525 rear lamp and has been found to fit perfectly. The large circular array of LEDs gives excellent visibility of the stop and tail light functions which is as good, if not actually a little better, than the standard filament bulb.
Please note: This item is only the LED ‘bulb’ upgrade and does not include the Lucas rear lamp unit itself.
