Default Need help with a Vintage Headlight

I have found one and cannot find anything about it or another on to make a set to use on my rat. I am hoping one you can shed some light on it or maybe even have another single one I can purchase. It looks similar to the Guide light with the signal on the top, but its from Dietz and its number 820-d the housing is all painted black as weel as the retaining ring and it has a sealed beam light. Any help would be great.

Dietz has been in business for a very long time. They originally made kerosene lanterns long before they made automotive headlights. I haven't seen that type of Dietz headlight before and yes, it is very similar to the Guide 682-C.

I saw you posted on the HAMB also. Maybe someone there has one.
