    Little bit of final doodad was trying to figure out something to use for a rear light (law here says have to have headlight and a red light on rear) was at work and it came to me. I'm an electrician and we use light boxes so why not. Drilled a hole in back of the box 20180722_195339.jpg
    Lined the inside with aluminum tape and inserted light 20180722_200847.jpg has a replacement brake light lens that fit perfect and 20180722_201115.jpg just need to mount it and get some pics for the finished section

    Very resourceful, you should wire it with some flexible steel conduit to complete the theme!:)

    Dig the video! I always have thought it should be mandatory to see these bike builds actually being ridden as a qualification to being 'Finished'. Looks like a comfy ride!
