Fenders? Light?

Great transformation..Where did you get the fenders? Front head light? Is that vintage? Need one for my old Triumph mixte.

Sorry for the 2 year

Sorry for the 2 year delay...
Fenders are Velo Orange. Light came with the original bike that I found abandoned in my neighbor's yard 5 years ago. I don't know anything about it other than it's a Dynamo generator light, but I'd say it's at least as old as the bike itself which is an '83.
