I've a vintage headlight with a horn built in, designed for a mere 3v instead of 6 it might work... but I've a generator hub so I've not tried it... for this I'd suggest batteries (headlight horn combo is common) or even an air horn like city of angles suggested *shrug*
Them generator head lights and tail lights combo
Would a mini horn work off this instead of lights??
This only creats very small power??

I was thinking about putting a small 6 volt motorbike battery
But i don't want to recharge it every time it goes flat....
So connect it to white wire????

But then i have problem of to many amps in the battery might do damage??

What do you think of this???
