The light project &quot;PRICELE$$&quot;! I live central in the city of Stockton CA. My city is ticketly &quot;&quot;very&quot;&quot; serious about lights on bikes after dark. I have given more flashlights to my group of bicycling associates than I ever owned. lol<br> This definitely has a trade/street value for parts &amp; accessories.<br>TY<br>Raul
