    Vintage Style Light Suggestions

    As the title suggests is there such a thing as a vintage style light with modern performance? The bike it's going on is an old Stumpjumper converted to a kind of Townie/Commuter bike. I was trying to keep the mods at least semi period looking. The selection of high quality lights is overwhelming. But something vintage inspired is non-existent. If anyone has a suggestion or could steer me in the right direction it would be a big help.

    There are a bunch of (led) vintage style bike lights on amazon, but these are quite vintage looking lights like the one i had on my old CCM so maybe too vintage for you. Anyway have a look. Cheers!!

    Maybe not that vintage. But thanks for picture. If worst comes to worst I can get a Cygolite. Which is a nice light for the money but not really vintage looking.

    You could gut an old vintage style light and put in a led, optics and a driver.

    I think the Europeans are still creating vintage style lights with new led emitters and driven by dynos.

    I found this page that listed some of them
