Default Re: New Poster Interested in 12 volt turn signals

I think it would be fun to wire up 12 volt turn signals and a horn. Has anyone ever done this?

I've attached some recycled motorcycle turn signals to the battery box. I found LED bulbs to replace the filament bulbs. I need an LED flasher, and a switch to mount to the handle bars.
Jay, When I did a turn signal system,I used a Peterson switch box {available from JC Whitney} I guess you could use normally open, momentary push button switches mounted in a small project box from Radio Shack, I used a regular can flasher but needed to add 10 ohm power resisters in paralell with right and left leds. easier than building flasher circuit on board. regards Terry
