I initially abandoned this project, and went with the bicycle lights. The problem is that they just don't project far enough. Even if I added a 2nd light to the front, the beam would just get wider. I will probably redesign my original system, using clamps to mt the headlight and go with only one light up front, keep the trailer light in the back and use a better battery with more amp hours. I still have the wiring harness at my casa.
