I have some vintage service station lights similar to the attached photo. However, they don't have any sockets, nor anyway to connect them to the conduit. I've been unable to locate these parts.

I made light fittings using gas pipe. A local machine shop made conduit to gas pipe adaptors for me for about £1-50 each.

Marvo did the same a few years back as I recall.

Thanks Carl. Could you elaborate more on what you did? I need something that would resemble a "NPT bell reducer". Like a 2" X 3/4". The large end would go over the top of fixture, the 3/4" rigid conduit (or black iron pipe) would go into the 3/4" end. I still would need to improvise something to hold the bulb socket...

If you have the bulb socket any small town metal worker could produce what you require.
