Found it next to a building sitting in a pile of junk and discarded shoes its complete with Photocell, arm and bulb. The bulb is etch less and dimmed out.

I dipped it in the river to clean it... It was nasty before I took those pictures.

Nice! It has an LM feeling to it... But I'm not sure. The photocell works right? What is the bulb?

So far the only thing the photo cell has done was produce a high pitch shreak... As for the bulb I'm not sure yet..

Looks like loads of fun to ride home with it on the handle bars!

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

I carried a roadkill streetlight to my house before on a bike. It was a GE LED ERLH. I was thinking of doing it with an M-400 I found, but it was still attached to its arm and it was too heavy.

I never found any roadkill lights worth keeping when I was growing up in the 70's/80's...the golden age of HID.

I can relate to all this - Back in my younger days I could not balance fluorescent light fixtures on my bike so I would walk for miles and pick them up and bring them home on a little red wagon I had,

My parents would not allow me to bring fluorescent light fixtures in the house so when I brought them home on the wagon I would hide them on the side of the house in the bushes then when they went to work then ai would bring them in and hide them in my room, Ha, Worked like a charm,

I remember those days 😜

Btw Love those fish chairs in the back ground

Wow, nice find! I like that how you'd tied it to your bike! Just get a 12v to 120v inverter and you have you're self a big head light!

Save the Cooper OVWs!! Don't them down by crap LED fixtures!!!

Funny how little things stick in one's mind. The good times, as little as they were, are still there for us to remember.

Maybe a Hubbell NPC-175C? Look at the flat top of the hood on yours and compare. Maybe?

That would be an interesting to see riding along...

And those fish lawnchairs in the background are cool. Where'd you get 'em?

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

Nice find! I never see anything like this around here to get. It needs a better photocell though!

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

So is carrying light fixtures on a bike really a thing?? That's cool... I wish I could see someone on their bicycle
carrying a light fixture. If I saw that, especially on MY bike (although mine is a motorcycle) I'd turn around or pull over instantly
and try my best to create conversation with that person, since they've made it obvious that they're also lighting enthusiasts like me.
I'd also offer to help as best as I can

Interests
1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Yep
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend
