    Small and probably final update on this one.
    Sometimes I can’t get my ‘almost’ daily rides in until dusk, I needed to add some ‘be seen’ lighting. I wanted to keep it minimal, water ‘resistant’ and of course.....cheap.
    Grabbed these rubber LED units off eBay for $5 a piece.

    A blue one to match the paint, it fit perfectly on the double mount stem

    And a red one for the rear (the green band is off my blood pressure med bottle, a reminder of one of the reasons I’m trying to ride every day)

    They have 3 modes, solid on, quick flash and slow flash, I do believe they will work out just fine.

    Later guys!
    Cheers,

    Lighting is always good, just not always small.

    So, I was messing around with the flashing mode on my new lights and my daughter noted that the flashing red and blue lights would probably freak out some ‘party people ‘ at the beach.....hahaha looking forward to meeting some!

    Decided to put a little attitude on the bike.
    This is how I feel when I ride it!

    Great bike! Any tips on finding a stem like you used?[​IMG] I have a pair of double knurled bars picked up at a swap, maybe motorcycle or moped? is there a standard spacing? Thanks Dr. T

    Hey bud, I got mine off of eBay YEARS ago (like 10 years). I believe it was sold under the brand ‘Dorcy’ which was an inexpensive line of BMX parts from the late 70s - early 80s sold in major department stores like KMart and such. Somehow, they’ve become a little pricey.
    Here’s a black one on eBay right now.

    Thanks! Yes they are pricey. Something to hunt for at swaps! Like it better than the aluminum cast ACS type. Vintage-SR-Slingshot-Bullmoose-Stem-And-Handlebar-211mm-_57.jpg
    seems some Dorcy's are cheaper built stampings...
