Conventional headlights were the old dome type changeable bulbs, which don't give the greatest light I agree, and are a bit difficult, but not impossible, to find now.
I managed to keep a couple of spares, for my HA, but not sure how long they will last!
Try not to take her out at night I suppose!!, but will certainly need half decent lighting for rain and fog!
Other 7 inch sealed beam units will fit, and give brighter light, but you will also need the relevant push on connectors and wiring adaptors, or join them in to your existing wiring.
Need to ensure also that they have the side light bulb capabilities as well, which they might not!, or you will have to convert the indicators to white domes and twin bulb system as well.
