right so my daily rider bicycle is a beach cruiser i pulled out the dumpster and kludged to work.   i ride this bike instead of my lowrider and my gary fisher so i dont turn too many heads and attract attention from gang members and police. i already have been assaulted by people trying to steal my nicer bikes, and ticketed by nosy pigs.    so i have a grip of flashlights and medicine bottles and blown inner tubes just chillin around the house and i put them together to make an epic kludge

Step 1: Materials

a flashlight  with a head that will snugly fit into the cap of the medicine bottle

a medicine bottle

electrical tape

some innter tube

scissors

Step 2: Install the flashlight

its easier to put the flashlight on the frame the idea is just like this instructable. where you mount the light is up to you i decided to put it by the coaster break so traffic behind and to the left of me as i ride on the right side of the road sees me.  

so just cut a small section of inner tube off like a rubber band and do the do

first screw in the cap,  some caps have the top and bottom of the bottle threaded. one is child safety side the other is just screw on,  put the cap on with the child safety stuff facing away from the bottle, once its on wrap the the edges and the small portion on the bottom so the flashlight fits snugly and doenst glare white light around. 

Step 4: Put bottle on flashlight
