Thanks for the kind words. It is a really nice little bike. I haven't opened the headlight yet (it works along with the tailight) so haven't discovered the bulb holder. Interesting! I'll have to take a peek this weekend.

Other than the less-than-stellar braking performance (35 + year old pads are still on it), everything seems to work fine. It shifts very smoothly and the bell has a very distinctive ring. The generator works, the tailight shines red, and the headlight actually lights the road in front of you (with the original yellow lens)
