    Old Ford/GP tail lights? What to build?

    I don't think you have to worry about the voltage difference with 12V car compared to 18 volts in two small batteries as these. The LEDs I was told are a form of control of the power. So they light up in the process of controlling the voltage. They do make for a bright light. I will have to...

    Old Ford/GP tail lights? What to build?

    Got the old Ford GP lights in the mail yesterday. Changed out the conventional bulbs to LED bulbs. The 5007 bulbs were available in LED form and so was the 1157, changed to 1157R for the tail lights. Took two Duracel 9 V batteries and snapped them together one positive to one negative. (one...

    Old Ford/GP tail lights? What to build?

    How about a CYC bottom bracket motor with 48 v overvolted to 52 V. Or maybe get crazy and go up to a 72V battery and controller. But what frame is Heavy Duty enough? Tires? I guess lots of details depend on what bike I find. That is the first order of the day. Maybe buy a cheap fat tire bike...

    WWII Jeep tribute/Ratty bike.

    Any ideas on what kind of a build could look evil or all terrain in memory of the WWII jeep? I bought a pair of new production tail/turn lights as on the old jeeps and one will go on my 76 GL1000. One will be available for the bike of my choice. I think a beat up looking fat tire bike with 20...
