Can any-one shed some (light) in regards the pressed in logo on the back of a Cycleray head light by guide. I want to know if the one I have in original or not. Has any-one get any pictures to see the difference in logo style. Thanks Keith
The word "Guide" in the middle of the logo. repop lights have block letter, and the originals had script. Is this correct???
No it is not! Original light s came in both script and block versions. They also came in stamped brass and steel as well as four known variations of grounding. Pictures of what you have will help identify it. Robbie
After considerable research, IMHO, original had script, not block! What I did find, is the circular logo, containing "guide" in script, is that the stamping isn't necessarly orientated the same, out of the 360 degree options. The head light mounted verticle, as designed, the stamped logo could very well be at 6 oclock, or 12, or 10 oclock, or across at 4.40 Random!! Hmmm Thanks Keith
My company makes the repro lights with stamping. The stamp shown on the pictures is not like ours, so very possibly original, unless there is a competitor that makes a scripted repro (or made). To my knowledge both stamps are used originally, but script letters are more "trusted" to be original due to enormous amounts of blockletters reproductions out there. Obviously if only scripted was used we would have made a scripted stamp to stamp the logo in
