Default headight housing

I am looking for the correct part # for a headlamp housing for my 1971 sportster. Mine has cracked. For a housing it gives me part # 67743-75, which would be for 1975 and up?

If you’re not concerned about originality, you can use newer buckets and visors too. I had a problem cracking visors from vibration a while back, and bought somebody’s take off parts from their ‘04 model and they bolted up no problem. Has a better ring to retain the lens, thicker ribbing under the visor, and you get an h-4 lens to boot. I also used a short cut of rubber tubing between the bucket and lower fork brace to act as a shock absorber. Thanks to doc d for that tip.

Looks like part # 67703-65A will work. This is the second housing that has cracked. It has been repaired once before by brazing reinforcing pieces inside about 4 years ago but has since cracked. I am using a H4 bulb, it shorted out due to the vibration caused by the crack. I do like the idea of a rubber washer to help with vibration.

Yes, 67703-65A would seem to be correct. According to the 1973 parts book supplement, this was replaced by 67733-72.

It seems odd the headlight housing was not orderable as a separate unit, but only as a complete unit. But it is what it is (or something omitted from the parts catalog(s), back in the day).
