I wanna see the light.....!!!!

Postby mrmorbid » Thu Oct 14, 2010 10:36 am

Ok so the warmer weather is on its way, which means evening rides.
Last year we had to settle for plastic cats eye type headlights, which do not go with the style of our bikes, so I am looking around for these:

Problem is that I need 3 sets, which is going to be $150+ from what I have found.
Been searching online and have found them at the following stores for around the same bucks:

Ebay
Saintside
Lowlifer
Chopperus
Bicycledesigner
and more that I don't recall.

Can anyone suggest a place to find some that may be cheaper?

Cheers,
Darren

We have been getting a modern LED light and dropping the guts of it into old school housings.

Nokia phone bateries run aroun 4.5 volts and there are chargers everywhere.

I have an old school rear light with flashing LEDs and nokia batery inside. It would run for days.

Check this idea out.....
