    this is my bicycle, i put this muffler on recently and i really like the sound! i also have wired up a 120v system with a 50w halogen on the front. and a 7w 120v light bulb inside the skull, i still have tones of power left if i want to use a radio or a horn,

    any input is appreciated, thanks!!

    I hope you have a really long extension cord.

    You could have gotten the same wattage of light in a 12v version. But then again you probably have the only bike in the world with 120V AC! That is really cool!!

    LOL.. I have though about a trailer with my 1kw 2-stroke generator on it. Also on that trailer is a large deep cycle battery. I like the idea of camping and writing computer programs in the evening.

    Power assist is necessary I do believe but I thought to go 12V but it could be 120V easy enough.. 10 amps of 120v should turn a reasonable 120V motor.

    Thanks for sharing. Nice Rig!!!

    Could plug in a few things on the side of the road like a Laptop?

    If we could plug in to charge when we stop for say Coffee then that makes it rather attractive too. A motorcycle battery charger is just a large transformer.
