Default 6 v lighting systems

Hello everyone,
I am at the conclusion that most bicycle lights that are easily affordable really stink .
with that said ....Those of you who are running home made lights are you running off your engine or an onboard battery?
I found some nice chrome bullet shaped lights at Wallmart.They are actually for the rollbar on a pickup but you get a pair for about 15.00,a little modification and you have a nice set of lamps.
If you want to try youll need some old flashlight lenses because the 12 v ones are a contained bulb.
a little red tape for the rear,and for now I am containing the bulbs with a piece of fuel line and a little tape untill I feel like messing with it again......Nice lights ...Cheap too!
I just want to know what peoples experience has been with running lights off of the Magneto,Id love to get rid of the drycell battery!
Its often easier to get forgiveness than permission!!....Rob in CT
The First Harleys had pedals!!
