The SV-650 headlight seems to be the best option for the money. I have been on the lookout for one on ebay lately. There are probably other bikes that would work as a donor too.

Well guys, the original light is „not ideal“ – no discussion about it. But don´t you think that using SV 650 light (or whatever light with modern clear glass and not bullet-shaped body) destroys the nicely balanced vintage styling of Scrambler? For me personally SV 650 is not the option. But I liked the light relay option (if it helps) together with effective bulb.
