I can only detach the front lens and unscrew the E10 bulb.

The engenious one-part sculpture of aluminized plastic that is both the
reflector, and the base, will not move to the front one bit -- yes, even if
I bark at it in Old Prussian, threatening to shoot Namibian sand at the
lens, or to buy a new lamp from vontrotha.

Good idea. Then sell it as "fully disassembled, exact same level of
functionality as before" and use the proceeds to quickly repaint the wall.[1]

No, just mild Soviet fallout exposure that made my Soubitez-equipped bike
glow twice as bright. And just mild smashes involving gym mats, not walls.
And I have no axe to grind with French volunteers either, they are welcome
to drag UV-irradiated Mme Lagarde's luxurious tortoise butt out of
Frankfurt, asap.

It is fascinating to see how QE works when a central bank buys private debt and not just public debt. Purses not nukes! I say give them both free money for a public-private partnership to create an LV purse-nuke. Tiffany can make glass lamp shades out of the Trinitite. Win-win. Make France great again! MFGA!

I've never seen the square lamp you link, which might have been good for bikes, though the batteries would be HEAVY. I was talking about the distant ancestor of the Super Oscar shown here with LED illumination:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWBAywpgJBQ

Apparently the huge Oscar Halogen lamps I used, shown in the video at c2:26, are still available for nostalgic endurance racers. The ones used in racing were heavy all-metal items (for heat dispersion and to survive brushes with the scenery) and not overly aerodynamic either.

Given under the usual caution that after half a century the details might have merged in the memory.

My fault for letting you misunderstand. It was only a satirical role of a
colonies-envious Prussian going completely mad over some French piece of
plastic junk, and ending up welcoming French "volunteers" to remigrate Mme
Lagarde. In reality, everybody on the Continent absolutely adores Mme
Lagarde, Europe's leading monetary expert, best dressed economist, and sole
markets wizard able to halt tomorrow's FTSE-MIB crash triggered by the
Yellow Plague.
