That's useful to know. I have red and blue ones but also one that's faded to almost clear.

From what I see I'd say the 1965 could have the blue but I'm not sure.
Sorry. ............lm

I have a drawer full of the faded ones.
I'd say they were in direct sun light for a long time. ......................lm

Using a colored bulb helps a bit with the fading.

The bike I have was stored in a barn with a couch over it since 1970. The lens is like new and looks like a sapphire. it should look real purdy when lit up.
