These sold on eBay last evening for $145. They are not actually a pair. The one on the right is absolutely an original Cibie Z Beam (not new but lightly used). The one on the left, however, is something different. It looks similar to a Z Beam but has a somewhat different lens. Since I've seen a lot of Z Beams, running them both originally and currently on my '76, but have never seen one with a "different" lens, I didn't know how to evaluate this "other light."

I put in a half-hearted bid, based on the value of a single used Z Beam, but was relieved to not win.


EDIT 2-13-13: The non-Z Beam, with a lens similar to a Z Beam, is a Cibie Iodine Quartz (a.k.a., I.Q.) Dual Filament 7" headlight conversion, the predecessor to the Z Beam. According to a 1974 Cibie brochure, the model number is 66-70-059.
