I'd use LED lights in there. There are Cree bulbs you can get for not too much. Where did the light come from? I'm guessing it is old and from a boat. Brass is mighty fine, too. Whatever it is, it will look really good on your bike. Nice find!
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
