I think in general the model 14/100 lenses are going for right about $50. I have some ambers but no Reds currently. Try posting in the want ADs..

the blue lenses on the bar look like Grote lenses... btw.

Those are incorrect domes for a Visibar Model 11. Federal F2 domes will not match whats on there, they dont look the same. So you might as well figure on replacing both to make the bar look correct. Two F2 domes will run atleast $100. That bar should have domes with the clear tops, not frosted, if you want to keep it correct. If it doesnt have the feet and you have to buy a set of those you will be looking at another $100 or more, and thats if you can find a set. Good luck with the restoration.

Nice find. Love the Visibar. Those domes look sharp on there too. EVen if they are not federal domes, they have history as they must have been used on there.

I may know someone interested in the blue Grote domes if you decide to replace them.

If above options don’t pan out, I’ve got a used red dome off a Model 14 parts beacon. Needs a polish but intact. PM if interested (I’m the guy who traded Twinsonic domes w you a while back).

Hey yeah thowe clears look great by the way...the only thing is the tops are a little different I kinda want to keep them the same style but thank you for the offer. If u come across one that matches the ones I have please let me know. I'm gonna have to put it on the back burner for a few weeks my work schedule doesn't allow me much play time

To the best of my knowledge, this red dome is accurante for your Visibar. Not the blue ones you actually have mounted onto it. The correct model 11's domes had the "step" at the top.
