I wonder if a Ducati Monster chrome ring would fit or be the same.
I fitted a R90 glass to my 900SD once which I think has the same ring as the SD Bosch head light,the SD reflector fits the Monster head light. ????
Might be another possibility.

Nice R 90,I rode a R90S once,bit like a Morris Minor on steroids,the brakes made a whistling sound and seem to remember the foot pegs had the same off set as the cylinders,yikes,a German her indoors is enough.

Have to admit,if the momentum was kept up it could cover some ground easily.

Yes the Ducati Monster headlight lens is the same as the post /5 ones, and some 70's Ducatis. I was failed on having a LHD one my Darmah and the local Ducati dealer have BMW ones...$ 150.00.Chances are the ring is the same too.
