Step One: collect the needed parts
MR-16 LED lights
LED turn signal flasher
2x LED side marker lights
LED Stop/Tail light
2x lever switches
spdt-center-off toggle switch
12v NiCd battery
Step 1: Brake Switches
Step 2: Brake/Tail Light
(edit: pictured combo light just arrived from China - !@#$ wires enter from top *WITH NO SEAL* so rainwater can enter and turn the $7.50 blinky tail/brake light into a useless P.O.S. if it isn't sealed up before installation)
Step 3: Turn Signal Lights
Step 4: Flasher
for the prototype I re-worked a circuit board from a scrapped "mole-chaser" using a 520k timing resistor giving a flash rate of about 1.5 times a second, transistor was a 2n2222 and relay was a Radio Shack 275-0005 9v mini relay .
*(08/30/2013) CF13JL02 type (at least the ones marked FCR:LED instead of "for LED") - 5 different samples all required a minimum lamp load of 2.5W-3W to operate in hyper-flash mode (substantially more for a normal flash rate).
FLL002 (12V-24V, 0.1W-100W) type has been reported to work ,and a MF-5 (6V-12V, 0.1W-100W) Motorcycle Flasher has been verified to work. (tested with a 14-LED side-mirror array drawing 40mA@9V)
Jiye SG252B (12V 135W) verified to work and produces an audible click from relay and has pilot led confirming operation. (tested April 2017).
Step 5: Headlight(s)
Step 6: Battery
(board on battery in first pic is home-made flasher unit)
Step 7: Connecting It Together
Step 8: Housing
Step 9: Coming Soon(?)...
For v2.0 I plan on trying an inexpensive digital volt-meter off fleabay for battery monitoring... and may try to draw a wiring diagram in CAD... and maybe even a second i'ble 8-) (or maybe win the lotto and get a better camera to re-shoot some of the pictures so they aren't so !@#$ fuzzy *g*) and maybe build a second flasher unit to wig-wag the outer two headlights... Found some Cree U1 LED fisheye motorcycle lights (in black or "chrome" aluminum) on fleebay with higher power (about 5W though claims range from 10-12W at 12-80V), a lens that projects a narrow spot beam rather than the wider flood of the MR16 lamps,and which will clamp directly to handlebars...
