  1. Lump, this is the best drawing, photo I can find. It is a small car and cycle cars did use motorcycle components, so maybe the lights are from a motorcycle
  2. Thank you for all this information, it sounds like I may be best to look at carbide lamps that I can electrify for safety reasons. I don’t think the tubing is conduit because it is only a 1/4” tubing. The photo of the white car is at the Peterson museum in LA, it has been highly customized and is not original. These cars were made in Detroit for only a few years and I believe the one I have is one of only a handful left. I am looking forward to restoring it. I just ordered new rims from Australia so I can build new wheels.

  4. The reason I think that the Princess had carbide headlamps is that there is tubing running to each lamp and the tubing terminates in the trunk. The Deitz lamps that are currently mounted on it are oil tail lamps with red lenses. This a interesting car, it had been sitting for many years in a collection that a fellow here in Michigan has, I think it originally was part of the Barney Pollard collection. After a little work on the magneto it fired right up and purrs like kitten.
  5. It is my understanding that these tanks were acetylene generators that used calcium carbide and water to o generate the gas
  6. Hello, I just joined this group tonight and was looking for brass era headlamp. I purchased 1914 Princess cycle car this fall and it has a pair of the Deitz lamps on it. They are obviously the wrong lamps but I thought it interesting to see you had found a pair also. The car originally used carbide gas lamps that I am looking to replace
