Reversing light, desmo or Lucas

Post by Bitsilly »

This link is from a German website, but appears to be taken from an english booklet:

http://mini-ig-nord.de/resources/cat59_98.jpg

It says that the desmo reversing light (under the bumper) is an option.

Is that correct?

Cheers

The full leaflet is on the main Mk1 site. These were dealer fitted options that could be fitted at the time of sale or after. The reversing lamps was £1/10s (£1 and 10 shillings). £1.50 in the new decimal money.

I once owned a very original Mk2 998cc Super deluxe which was fitted with one of those - made by Desmo I think. Very popular with Mods for their scooters!
