Homemade bike lights? Answered

I am trying to make a front light for my bicycle and I have my electronic part right but, I need to find a reflective background for it but I don't know where I would get it.

A mirror, Aluminium foil or duct tape- keep it as smooth as possible, If you using LEDs then forget the reflector and use a lens, a polished tin can, Polished aluminium - needs a lacquer coat to keep it shiny though. Polished stainless steel.

An old flashlight will give you what you need. Also, you could just attach it to the bike.
