Revere Urban-Lite (aka Pea-Head) « on: December 25, 2019, 06:07:48 PM » Author: joseph_125
Came across this searching the internet today. It was on eBay a couple years ago but I wonder if any collectors ended up getting it. Still nice to look at the pictures I guess. Looks to be NOS too, the IBEW Union Made sticker on the slipfitter is still intact.

A side note, I wonder how the Pea-Head moniker came about, most of the literature from Revere called this model the Urban-Lite but it seems the name Pea-Head is quite commonly used by collectors.

At the time I got a wild hair and decided to sell my collection. This was one that sold quickly since it was NIB as well. Still had the original REVERE box too.

That must have been a super rare find. Even the used ones are fairly rare IMO.

Yea, I regret selling it. I am sure a collector bought it.

Look well used, not new as the seller describes them.

I'll probably buy one if I ever happen upon some good amount of money. I've been wanting an old light for a while.

Been mostly working on stocking bulbs tho due to the future demise of hid.

I "bought" one from that eBayer earlier this year. He NEVER shipped it to me. After a week of no shipping notification, I asked him what happened. He said he had sold them all.

After a few months, I saw he still has this ad up, I asked him "I thought you sold them all" his response was something about "oops" and he thought he had some more stored away somewhere, he'll need to find them.

I felt shafted though, he had several good feedbacks on that product

He did the same thing with me over a year ago.
