Ebay for "Beehive tail light" and you can get a repro for a reasonable price.

Yep, it's a repop Harley BeeHive/Boat-tail light... called either one. Notice the flange on the Ebay one...they are made for a FLAT fender mount. I spent days cuting and shaping it to fit the curve of the Puch. The chassis inside will have to be modified too as it now will sit too close to the fender after reshaping, it needs to be 'dropped', bulb angle changed and new holes drilled to line up with the new fit. I used an auto door edge black trim to cover the sharp edge and give a finished look.

It has only 2 wires, a hot and ground, I tried to wire it with both tail and brake...no go? So now it's just a tail light. The clear 'window' on top was to illuminate a motorcycle license plate, I tinted it green to match since my plate is under the tail. Good luck if you put one on.
