Here's the light kit diagram. The front bracket is shown pretty clearly there. I'll dig up a picture of one of mine.

Here is one variety of the cyclops light setup. There is a second type I can look for a pic of.
Here is a third variety...this type was used on the B-1's, but also offered with Simplicity part numbers for the 725. You could use this one to add one light or two. Pre-light bar era.

Here is the first variety...this style seems to have disappeared quickly, and I have never gotten my hands on an original (though I would very much like to, for my Wonderboy 700). The flaw appears to be the position of the light...I'm thinking this style mount caused the light to contact the grill when the hood was opened.

The light itself is the same as what was used front and rear on the 59-64 Simplicity's. Guide brand, and typically with a chrome bezel.
In or around 64 the front light kit changed to include lights that did not have an integrated switch, but instead, one on the dash, and chrome beselz became an option and are harder to fine. The 'rear work light' still carried on as the rear option with a switch in the light housing. That is the light that was used all the way around, prior to the dash switch kit for the front. They aren't HARD to find, but come at a premium. Figure $60+ per light for one undamaged.
I let a NOS one go for $80 in October, with no mount, and recently threw a nice used one online, with the rear mount and original wiring...it went over $100.

Anyone sell kits or remade ones you know of?
there's a guy that sells the mounting brackets so all you have to do is find a light

I'm not sure if he sells repops of the cyclops mount or not...he did not use to. I know he now makes a couple of the rear mount varieties. I had shared similar images with him previously, but the demand is pretty low for tricking out a fliphood Simplicity.
