Default street bike lighting

Hi guys, new here in the electrical world, and i need some help in wiring a lighting system. what i want is a 6v system, as i am connecting a motorcycle alternator to my engine. I need some good headlights, including daytime runners, some good turn signals, and brake lights. i also want to put a radio on there, along with some frame and engine lighting. How would i go about wiring this?

12v would work much, much better for what you're going for. You'll need a 4-5 amp hour battery and a 12v generator like this:

I use that setup and this headlight:

which is insanely bright. You can run the generator off a belt going to any engine or jackshaft shaft. Or, put it on your rear tire to work as a friction generator. You also need a voltage regulator

to charge the battery.

Choose your turn signals off eBay (the bolt on type) and buy this:

You'll be completely set besides a brake light

That's the easiest option I've found, it fits in your V brake caliper. The other option is to wire a switch to go right under the brake lever, so when you pull it it sends current to any red light you choose.
