I've a 180mm Bosch head light surplus to requirements, brought by mistake when building a project, the chrome ring, glass and reflector and seal are excellent condition, as is the bowl, although it could probably do with a resray, the hole for the cables is un-Laverda like small, be difficult to get the usually 90% of the wiring loom through it.
Price wise I paid about 140 on fleabay, but after what someone is reasonably prepared to pay. No idea what it came off originally,  Laverda, BMW, Moto Guzzi? The glass is 1305 604 018.
Pm me if interested.
If I have no interest  I will put it back on ebay

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

I thought that is was because when you was escorting a fair young damsel, with you left arm linked to her right, you would keep to the left leaving your sword arm free, to protect should a possible assailant approaching from your right cause trouble.
Of course that means a large number of countries must be Cack-handed

Do that and the lady will be missing a leg when you've drawn your sword.

Wasn't it so you could use you whip R/H to drive the horse drawn carriage's without it getting caught it the trees etc. on the side of the road.

That would imply
a) that most of the world is left handed
b) that most of the world doesn't whip horses

I always thought the left hand drives came about so the right handed gent driving could fondle his passenger with relative ease. ;D
