Hesketh-Related Chat / HAPPY NEW YEAR!
« Last post by Rob B on January 01, 2018, 05:23:25 PM »
I had an enjoyable but very wet ride from Dorset to the Brooklands Classic event today. The Hesketh was filthy but got lots of attention as it had very clearly been ridden there! Needless to say it was the only one.

Wishing you all the very best for 2018.

Hi Rob ,unfortunately some of the digits are unreadable on the yellow bosch sticker,the thing is getting a 7" lhd headlight with the same mounting points as the original,
next i will take the unit in to my local vw parts shop to see what they think.

Hi Chris, sorry but the only thing I have heard is that the original RH unit is from a VW Golf so that would be a Mk1. Can’t tell you what the part number would be though but a LH unit is available online from vwheritage for £45.90. Worth checking?

Cheers,

Robert

hi all,
on the road to getting the bike ready for its spanish ITV/MOT i am looking for a replacement headlight unit,the existing bosh is 0 301 6?? 611 ,the first replacement i got looked good but did not have the correct mounting points for the pressed steel mounting plate.
could someone give me the correct bosh reference number for the left hand drive version of what i have or any equivalent i could buy that would fit.
many thanks
chris

Good luck with that!

I would go back to the old Rita system...

Title says it all really. I can't get hold of him.
I have a Hesketh with his ignition system on made by GILL electronics
GILL are not at all helpful, the igniter unit has failed, and all attempts to get another have been unfruitful
I was hoping to get hold of Paul to see if he had any others or if he could persuade GILL to make me one
Thanks
Chris

Lovely crisp morning ride to Sammy Millers this morning. Even better riding back home via the Compton Abbas airfield cafe for a light lunch. Next run will be Haynes Museum bikers breakfast on the 19th...
