Where can I find these lights?

Want to get some of these for the new rig-- I know where to get the brackets now, but where can I get that actual light fixture?
Thanks!

It looks like a dynamo powered light to me. Best source for them that I know of is Peter White cycles.

That is the old B&M stock halogen. If you plan on using the lights a fair bit, check out the newest generation of B&M LED lights. The best is the Lumotec IQ Cyo. I have one on the way! The LED's spool up much faster, reach full brightness at lower speeds and you don't have to worry about carrying replacement bulbs. BTW I get mine from Longleaf Cycles.

Looks like the IQ Cyos won't work with bottle generators, only hubs? Is there a similar model (unswitched, perhaps) for bottle generators? Thanks.

The switched version works just fine with a bottle generator. Just won't work if the bottle generator isn't against the wheel. You would not want to use an unswitched one with the dynohubs though, unless you want to run it all the time, which BTW many people choose to do with the LED's for added visibility. I use an IQ Fly Senso Plus with a AXA bottle generator on one my Twentys.
