What is the type of tail light that should be on a 1948 BSA C10 side valve 250.Does any one know the tail light number,i assume it is a stop/tail  light
Where does the wiring to it go,mine has been rewired but is rolled up under the seat,does it follow the mudguard or the stays that support the mudguard and on what side

good photo of '46 C11 on p. 13 of Bacon's "BSA Singles Restoration" - it appears to be clipped along the lower lip of the rear fender then transitions to the light at, or about, the upper mounting of the the light itself.

I'm just putting my 1948 c-10 back together and would like the same info you are looking for. There is no stop light switch on my bike and i haven't found a picture showing where it is mounted. I thought it would have a stop light but maybe not. I will look at my tail light and see if it is one or two wire .
Thanks for any help Mike

I don't know for sure if there is or not a stop light on a 48 model. Maybe some countries asked for one and others did not.
On 50's model, the stop swicth is bolted at the bottom of the tool box. This switch is common to cars of that period and can be found new.
If you want a tail light with a stop, you can find some pattern one (480), looking like the one with no stop but made to accept a stop/tail bulb.

Acording to my Lucas catalogue form 1936 to 63 the tail light for the 1948 C10 should be part number 53056A (model MT211)or was also supplied with part number 53256 instead. have a picture of it and will try and add it when MSN will let me.
