So,

Yes, I should have been more clear, this is an electric type lighter, so, it sounds like this is possibly a factory option?

I think that if it had been a genuine factory fitment there should also be an ashtray too, shouldn't there? ;)

Lol, this is the 50's remember, the world is your ash tray. Also, I think maybe this might be factory because smoking is super cool and how else would you make a bike even more cool?

Unless you can find it in the parts list I have certainly never seen it.

I think they were discontinued when Full-Face crash helmets came in .....
1953 AJS 16MS and a 1/3 scale Sopwith Triplane but that's another story ..... :lol:

Funny, So you all could make your bikes extra cool. But really in all honestly I'm wondering whether or not I'm going to be ordering a new headlight bucket or repairing this one, or leaving it as is. From what I can tell the lighter seems to be reasonably well done, albeit, likely a nightmare for anyone that lives in a wet climate.
