Hey folks. I am new to the forum. My name is Tom from New York. I see a lot helpful info. on these forums so maybe someone can help me with a little issue. I have a Kirby Model D50 I am restoring and it needs a new Kirby Logo on the headlight cap (the one that is there is melted, the bulb must have been leaning up against it). Any idea where I can get one of these? Thanks.

Welcome to the forum Tom. I used to work at the Oreck dealership in Syosset. Your best bet would be the Kirby Corporation of New York on Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont. If they don't have a new one, I'm sure they'll be able to pull one off one of their trade-ins. Hope this helps.

Again, welcome to the VCCC Tom.

As per our conversations, you already know this Tom; however, I am posting it here for other's benefit:

...not really a point in calling 'The Kirby Company in Cleveland' as this part is not carried by them anymore & has not been for many years...

If I may be of assistance with Kirbys to anyone, please feel free to contact me directly thru my email in my profile.

hagd all

Thanks everyone for your help in searching for the Kirby logo for my D50 headlight cap.


I did try the local Kirby place in Elmont but the guy told me he hasn't seen one of these machines in a long time. I'll keep hunting around, ebay etc...
