Make your own bike light. The box I used for the simple Ipod amp project came with an army surplus survey lamp in it. Well the lamp worked, and my cruiser is army green. You see where this is going?

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Parts
For this you need:
- 3AA Battery holder
- Old Reflector
- Army Survey Lamp ( from the simple iPod amp project...)
Step 2: Remove the Old Power Connectors
Two screws hold on the old power connectors, remove them so we can fit in the AA holder.
Set those aside, they are very heavy duty and I'm sure they will come in handy for something.
Step 3: Negative
Secure the negative from the battery to the body of the light by using one of the holes and screws from the old power connector.
Step 4: Positive
Strip a bit of wire from the positive cable coming off the back of the light. Solder the wire to your power switch, and the positive from the batteries to the switch too.
Step 5: The Ol' Switcharoo
Drill a hole in the box for your power switch...
Step 6: Attach
I use an old reflector to mount the light to the handlebar of the cruiser.
The light already came with a knob, use that to attach it to the reflector mount.
Step 7: Done
Ok you're done.
