Default Morris Wheel Identification

I'm new to The Forums, so please excuse me if these questions have already been asked.

I have two Morris mag wheels that were left to me from the estate of a club member. They have labels inside the rims: one says #1832 and the other says #1834. Can anyone help me (1) identify what years' Sportsters they fit and (2) what the Harley parts numbers were for them, since I understand they were either a factory or dealer accessory?

The second thing is, I have an XLCR dash lights module that has one of the lights out. Is there someone out there who can renew this item so I can use it?

Thanks, and good luck out there.

Spirit

Pics of the wheels would help. Unlikely anyone has old Morris numbers lying around.

I have a brand new NOS set of Morris mags for my '77 that I've never used. According to the HD boxes, the 19" front wheel part number is 43522-77 and the 18" rear is 41037-77. There weren't any stickers on the mags themselves when I checked a few minutes ago.

Only Morris wheels I can remember seeing is the single disc version for the '77 and the dual disc type for 1978. If you can take some pics we can better help you out.

Eric
