Quickie lighting system with turn signals and brake light from (mostly) scrap/on hand parts










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
key switch
wire
enclosure
12v NiCd battery


Step 1: Brake switches

Picture of Brake switches
Mount lever switches front and rear and link to brakes so switch closes when brake operates. Wire switches in parallel. I used switches with rollers and tied braided dacron fish line to the roller and to the brake cable (with a 'taught-line hitch' at one end to allow adjustment) - switches could also be mounted so that caliper movement operates levers...
