Three new lights on the way....

One, a rusty Dynamo light will be converted to batteries. The other two will need complete guts salvaged from LED lights of some sort. I'm really looking forward to the stein, it has a clear plastic bottom already! The paprika can will be a fun little light too, but could end up as a tailight.

Twin ‘Teardrop’ lights w/3-leds in each, mounted to both sides of the fork.

Here's a little streamlined headlight I put together from some PVC pipe scraps and a cheap LED flashlight.

I'd like to see your truss rod setup.

All ambient light in this photo with a lousy iphone and its small sensor by 12V bicycle lights and I was even too lazy to turn on the USAAF taillight.

Added a light to see by, not just be seen (doesn't help that I ride with sketchbook and laptop on top of the front rack in the way of the headlights). Separate 12V li-ion battery underslung off the rack. I tried to run one of Duchess' old yellow Hella 500s, but the current draw for the 55W halogen bulb was too much (I might try to get a H3 LED for the Hella 500 at some point because the housing is so ridiculously oversized for this that I think it would look awesome). This one is 27W LED and the battery is (obviously) a lot happier running it.
