i just scored a 1960~s girls hawthorne in pink for $45 at a thrift store. it is in excellent condition, all original except the seat (i think the replacement in better.) anyhoo, does anyone know how to wire the headlight or what batteries to use? or the model name? sn - 2977 65

Is this the tank with two bulbs in front of the steering tube? If so, one wire from the light goes to the front of the battery tray and the other wire connects to the switch. There should be a wire or connector from the rear of the tray to the other side of the switch. Probably takes two "C" batteries, but I~ve seen some with "D" also. Whatever fits.
