Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

I made some with the 50W bulbs like that about 3 years ago, very bright lights, heck on batteries.... because I ride a long ways most of the time and the battery didn't have as good of a life as I would have liked, but seems that is the case with most batteries...

nice job, you'll be able to see way out there now and that is a big deal for safety at night.



"I picked up a case of 12 of them for $3 bucks at a yard sale"
Nice Light...

I Salvaged parts from an old lamp we had that our cat decided we didn't need any more and did a 4' gravity check with it. "SMASH"

I used the power cord for the wires from the light to "the 12 volt battery
"a battery that I took out of our fio's cable modem shhh"

The chain switch from the lamp was also used for this light

I didn't HAVE to put tape on it but the pipe was gray stock & when
I painted it black it wouldn't dry "RUSTOLEUM"

So instead of waiting patiently for the paint to dry I taped it up it so I could work on it. Or else it would of looked much better more of a "factory made look" if i didn't tape it. Live and learn
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
