    Back in the day, when I was playing cowboys and indians. (no slur intended its what we called it) The FBI also known as the fibbies, sent around a bulletin to us lowly street cops. It was beware of biker handlebars that fire a 12 gauge shotgun shell.

    If the guy you stop, moves his handle bar as you approach look out. Fortunately I Never stopped a motorcycle. I did chase one through a golf course once. But I'm not the one who drove the car into the #6 water hazard. I think #6 was a par four for you golfers

    Oh heck, just attach grenade and tear gas launchers with a few random police flash grenades handy. That will definetly get you some attention.

    On a slightly less destructive note I bet you could tube mount some bottle rockets and use a model rocket launch system to fire them! I bet it would get you noticed! (Probably by the cops) :p

    I tend to like a tad more firepower myself. Also it might be fun to hook up a couple of high power Tesla coils. Nothing gets attention quicker than some lightning next to ya.

    NY city bike messengers keep a whistle in their mouth wile ridding. Gets your attention really well. Cheap. hangs on a string and lung powered. Here in CT it is law that on any bicycle (MB or not) you have to have a sound signaling device and I have been meaning to get one. Just one of them there things I will get around too, just as soon as it is to late.

    Maybe a flare gun could be helpful with visability.

    Ever think about a dual brake lever? I'm trying to consolidate all my controls to reduce handle bar clutter. Mostly for safety reasons.

    Oh man, thats doable too. Imagine how loud that would be?

    I have way to much on my plate but have been thinking about some sort of compressor powered by friction from a turning wheel. A small chamber with a pressure release valve so as not to over fill. Attached to a horn. The compressor would be about the size of the old bike generators. Nothing big. Secure it to the front forks. Dunno, just rambling.

    "Who Luvs Ya Baby"

    I bought a NOS 70's Kojak siren at a thrift shop . I was excited to get a battery in it and hear it go . The siren sounded great but it was barely louder than a whisper .

    [​IMG]

    I then went on a search to find an older smoke detector the kind with a constant wale not the beep beep beep ones . I had to look no further than my fathers place . I traded him two new ones for his vintage 70's units . It was an easy task to gut the Kojak siren and replace the innards with the alarm buzzer and 9 volt battery . It is now as loud and annoying as it ever was as a smoke detector and I have control over the switch . What Fun ! I first painted it black but it didn't go with the bike so I then painted it white . ............... D.J.

    You Da Man DJ!! Very cool hacking! And a solar panel from a 9volt yard light to recharge the battery!!!

    In the great words of the Baby's Momma; stop giving me ideas!!! I just got the winter project list down to 10. Now it is climbing again, snork.
