I while back my wife and I restored an old single speed to kick around the beach on. Since then I have been looking for a light to match the bike. Enter the flea market and for 1 dollar I get a light that matchs her bike. The switch is broken and the wiring is cracked.:idea: Off to Radio Shack. One LED, holder, toggle switch and BAM! Wife now has a bright LED light on the front of her bike.

Cool, I love homemade contraptions that work good. And it kind of looks like a little Martian helmet too :).

Her bike does look a little like a war of the worlds. Maybe it is the fishing lurer tassles of the handlebars.

Well, isn't it high time that you push the envelope a little further, then?

I'm thinking you should consider replacing those tassles with some strands of fiber-optic cable.... a couple more LEDs hidden in the bars, illuminating one end of the fiber .......

Cool way of keeping the old school look while getting modern light power.
