Ok. That's what I was thinking they were. I used to sell them all the time as turn signals for Harleys. They are one of the cheapest priced ones out there and look pretty good if installed right. A friend of mine has some original ones from the 60's. A bank of 3 all on one factory bracket. I am thinking of buying them from him and using them as a taillight/ turn signal assembly tucked underneath the seat.

In the 50s and 60's those were called sex lights. They were mounted in the upper corners of the windshields of our cars and some times the back window as well.
Most guys went with the blue or green ones.

My buddy used them in his customized 1949 Mercury under the dash and under the seats as mood lighting but it never seemed to put the girl in the mood.
Of course it could have been Larry that was the problem also.

I can't belive how much smoother the bike rolls with the hub adapter and 415 chain. The chain noise had been greatly reduced as well. Next it sbp expansion pipe. Then it is on to either a full suspension mountian bike or cruiser but I can't find a gt lts frame anywhere.

Took the bike for a ride to WallyWorld. Stopped at Lowe's and priced some lumber....Godz...I know they sponsor Jimmy Johnson but do I have to pay for his next car? Sticker shock almost killed me

Time to ride home.. brrrrrr...chug.chug.chug....noooo... chugchugchug....

These things get great mileage but they still need to be fueled The mile walk will remind me to check next time...

Definitely need to be fueled! I ran out of gas for the first time tonight on my way to my brother's. I had to pedal almost 2 miles, but I didn't mind. Felt dumb the whole time for other reasons

LOL, ayup. peddled home a bunch of times, out of gas. Very often after having just told some one about my exceptional mileage.
