DANGEROUS WHEEL-LIGHTS . (now With Videolink).

DO NOT DO THIS...MY LIFE IS OVER, IT'S OK, BUT YOU HAVE SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR.

Boy, I want those wheel lights but it's very doubtful that I'm not going to win them with this substandard entry...so I'll make my own and enter the process thus making some weird logic paradox.

But anyhoo, here goes;

It came to me in a flash:
How can I make some wheel-lights by tonight without doing much ?

READ ON.

This isn't the best way, but it was the quickest method today.

Step 1: PARTS NEEDED.

Wire mesh.

Fuel.

Something Flammable yet resilient.(I thought I was buying firelighters but these blocks are like dense felt and they are for barbeques).They were 50 pence.

A bike.

Step 2: ASSEMBLE.

OK, I put half a block in each rectangle of mesh and wrapped it like a sweet.

I wrapped these around the middle of the spokes.(two, opposite each other, so that it did not unbalance the wheel.)

Step 3: PETROL.

DO NOT DO THIS.

I added a tiny weeny of petrol to each and lit them.

It worked fine, sounded great and stayed alight ,(and it not get flung off the wheel).

I am just waiting for darkness now.

DO NOT DO THIS.

Step 4: Waiting....

OK, I'm still waiting for the dark.

I will publish the footage tonight.

    Cool!

    I would suggest a slight modification to your warning though:

    DO NOT DO THIS!

    AND DON'T DRIVE THIS THROUGH THE DRY GRASS, YOU MORON!

    There, that should do it. :-D

    did Edison wait to plug in the lightbulb? did Einstein wait before flying around the earth at the speed of light to slow down time?

    But just think how long Alexander Graham Bell had to wait by his newly invented telephone before he received a call . . .

    you can light up dry grass fields and have a fast getaway hahahaha no im no crazy.?

    Yes, I agree with all that you say. I have never been one to use sense instead of patience. I was tempted to try it but unfortunately my house is only about 3 inches bigger than my bike.
