Rectangular headlight wanted

I recently picked up a 1979 Xs1100 f (venturer). Iíve removed the fairing and would like to install an original equipment headlight. The bike only has 12,000 miles and the fairing (indigo blue) is in very good to nearly excellent condition. I may be interested in trading for the properly equipped headlight in excellent shape or buying outright. Can anyone help me or at least get me pointed in the right direction. Thanks in advance.

You probably need something like this...

BTW, your 79 is not a Venturer, it is a 79F Standard with a factory installed faring. The Venturer is an 81 only model.

Yes that looks like exactly what I need except in much nicer condition.

Yeah that looks to be a pretty good deal.....I remember seeing just the bucket or just the head light for $75.....and thatís the correct fork ears and reflectors throw in too. I bet if you got a can of Motherís you could get everything but the bucket looking good. Those reflectors arenít just factory correct and hard to find, they hold the headlight on.
