Light set for 1947 Schwinn New World

After feeling under the weather for a day or so, I got back on the road today. But before I did, I took some time to add a light set to the 1947 Schwinn New World.

This light set is a custom job: classic English tail light and generator, a Schwinn front lamp bracket, and a classic French aluminum bullet light in front.

The French light is streamlined and goes particularly well with this bicycle. It even has a French-style yellow head light bulb.

It really looks at home on this bicycle. While it is not particularly powerful, it does give off enough light for cars to see you at dusk.

I think this makes a nice edition to the New World light roadster.
