Is this to be an altered "Rat Rod" build?
Or an original bike that stays OG?.

I collect a number of middleweight tanklight bikes but do my best to not change the manufacturers build.

Regardless, good luck and I am excited to see the results.

Heres a few of mine

No tank here but a cool light setup on what looks like a huffy frame. I beleive this location of LED lights took the place of the chromed plastic tips on the ends of the top tubes.

I like the second idea you have alot. Very sporty looking even exotic. I am cheating a little bit here guys I've started gathering parts and I just sent out my single remaining lense to classic riders to have 2 repops made from the original. I've got a pretty good Idea in my head of what I'm going to build, think heavyweight firearrow. :lol: :lol:

Hey guys .. i am true newbie at electric stuff and need help... i will use 2 flash lights 4,5v each (3x "AAA batteries" pack) i wired the 2 lights on 1 battery pack and it work fine , but i just dont know how i could use a more powerful battery pack so the lights last longer ,but without delivering more than 4,5v to the lights
example: a 9v batery for two 4,5v lights
Thanks

First off, love your design! Cool work! 8)

For you lights, have you thought about using three C or D size batteries? They run the same voltage as AAA batteries but hold much more juice... You just hook them up the same as the AAA's were... With leds, I imagine they would last for a good year or two...
