@Kukki : no of course, I did not say that it would be nice to *make* that lampholder. I agree, that would get way too costly.
What I meant to say is that we should try to find an *existing* lampholder that fits / can be mounted in the bracket.
I expect such a (standard) lampholder to be $1 or $2. But my "eBay foo searches" are not that good, so I hope somebody else may find a suitable lampholder  :whistle:

Ohe, OK, sorry I got that wrong.
But yes that could be nice to find something there will fit in the bracket  :thumbsup:
Lets see what we can find out there

Folks - here are some pictures of a part I received some time ago when I bought a package of lamps/hoods, primarily to get a hood for the lamp on my throttle arm.  As you can see it's a fairly simple assembly - could be easily built up from available stock parts and a bit of fab for the hood.
@Kukki - note that this bracket doesn't fit up to the hole pattern on your HUD (so I'm going to probably be wanting one of yours one day... :countingmoney: ...) and the "stovepipes" (which look to be threaded), so it may or may not be actual bracket for that position like I was hoping, but I should guess that it is the same lamp/hood assembly.  The lamp base threads are approx. 3/8" or 9.4 mm; which should be the same as the lamp base on the throttle arm.
