glue for vintage Bargman 99 lens.

Somehow I managed to drop the lens and the edge has chipped into three pieces. Is there any glue that will work to fix it. I don't want to replace them right now since i may decide to put LCD lights in later.

A high quality cyanoacrylate should work. Not Wally world super glue. Go to a hobbie shop that sells supplies for building RC cars and airplanes. I think the thick formula would be best for a plastic lens. I've built lots of R/C planes with the stuff and it is strong. Other option would be a good quality epoxy.

There is a relatively straight-forward LED upgrade that utilizes the original Bargman 99 lenses and bases. This upgrade was done on my Overlander at the beginning of last season, and I have been thrilled with the performance.
