555 timer to make led's flash in this circuit ?
ok so my handicapped uncle has a 3 wheeler bike that he goes everywhere in day or night and I'm always worried about him being hit by a car in the dark so i wanted to make a light bar with 7 orange led's so he could be seen by cars and then i though of incorporating a solar panel so he wouldn't have to charge battery's (the battery's charge while hes out during the day and light up at night) but now i think it would help if the led's were to flash i have a few 555 ic's but I'm not to sure how to use them id like to use one in this light bar to make them flash
heres a sketchup model of the lightbar http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=60db9f5dd7284717d25303acb02b2c20&prevstart=0
thanks in advance
Ps i also have some pcb boards if needed
