It has been 4+ months since I've used a pre-Tradition Kirby... That won't do! I decided to vacuum the upstairs with my 516, not totally original but good enough for me. I could not find a headlight bulb. I know I have them, but cannot locate any at the moment. It is definitely in my top 3 favorite Kirbys. Has a new roller and front bearing. Cord is bojack(same as original one, but a bit shorter, no logo, and stiffer) and the bag is OEM. At one point I plan to buff the scratches out of the headlight cap, but they aren't terrible and not anywhere near the top of my to do list, lol.
