    I'm interested in the clear Cibie Biodes 170. Do you have them available and what's the price?

    I think that it would be possible over time to find the cores and restore them. But the 170mm Cibies are getting very hard to find, especially at rational prices. I'm thinking they're getting to $3,000, or more. I just sold a set that I restored for a customer who never installed them for $3,300 to a very happy buyer.

    You might want to take a look at Eric Linden's product. I don't know if he still sells them or not.

    To tell you the truth I'm getting tired of Cibies of all sizes and I'm about ready to drop them. And I'm sitting here with a large number of restored reflectors. Just lots of challenges for a restorer. Still love the way they look though.

    Good luck.

    If you change your mind and have found the cores, you can always contact me.

    Also, if you find cores you can send them to be for restoration. As I say, I already have restored reflectors 170mm and 190mm, low beam and high beam.
