All but one of the sockets are completely destroyed.

People are annoying.

Ouch. Hows the rest of the fixture like the reflector? If all that is good enough to reshape back and the ballast is not damaged you'll just need some sockets

Hopefully the reflector is still there - Sockets can be found ,

If no reflector - No problem, Load that puppy up on the bike and bring her home ,

Looks very savable,

Still looks salvageable. Save it before someone comes along and throws it in a ditch or pond..
(or otherwize simply feels the need to completely demolish it)

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Such a shame! At the very least I wonder if the ballast works. Doesnt look like it fried. Bad t17 ballasts are rare, as they come from and era of severe over engineering. Things were designed to last literally forever.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

Too bad about the sockets. I have a feeling the ballast still works. You might be able to salvage the contacts from the sockets and attempt to fit them into 3D prints too. If you do decide to explore that avenue it would be worth it to find something that's relatively heat resistant and flame retardant.

Yeah, I've seen them on eBay from time to time. Especially the tombstones. The starter sockets are a bit rarer to find but they fortunately look to be still intact.

Better grab it looks like a few good parts still

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

Did you get it yet?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.
