Hi all,

Our 1987 Alfa 75 was crunched in a parking lot (I blame an SUV judging by the height of the marks and the ineptitude of the driving!). As a consequence our right-side tail light has been broken and I need a replacement. Does anyone have a source they could recommend?

Being the 1987 model we need a light with an amber indicator lens, not the clear / white lens of later 75s.

I am based in Hobart, Australia - would prefer something local but happy to pay shipping if there is a reasonably priced option elsewhere.

Thanks for any help,

Matthew.

Just for clarity's sake, here's what it looked like before it broke:

Hey Matthew

You could always try Milano Spares 03 9462 2138 in Melbourne, they always have what I'm after for my 75 Twin Spark and pretty good prices.

My word, that is compellingly similar! Thanks all for your suggestions - I have dealt with Milano and Turin (and eBay) in the past - and I second the endorsement. I'm not looking for a new one but I will contact Milano - unless Craig wants to sell that one ...

No, I won't sell it to you but I'll give it to you for p&p (and a donation to the BB) if you want it.

It was given to me by a neighbour after he sold his 75 so I feel it's only fair to pass it on to someone who needs it.

It does have some damage to the reversing light (see pic).

You know I'm just going to pounce on this moment to express my amazement at the sheer generosity and true blue nature of Alfisti. While at a track day the other month, I was given a nomex driving suit for free, just because the owner didn't need it. Whilst it isn't new, it'd still fetch some reasonable money on Ebay. But just the general attiude is great. Makes me proud to be an Alfa owner.

Anyway I'll stop hijacking.

ROCK ON

Craig I am speechless - your service to the Alfa community gets greater and greater every day. They say you get what you give, but in your case it seems like you will need to "get" for a very long time to match your generosity.

In response I'll make a public commitment to donate $50 to the AlfaBB. I don't actually know what the value of the tail lens should be, but I have received so much help and entertainment from the site, that it's a pleasure to give something back. I'm ashamed to say I have only donated once before, so thanks for improving my character as well!
