Pete,

I'm already thinking about what I want to do next. Maybe I'll find something in Portland next year.

That's the spirit!  I always have at least one project bike waiting in the wings.

Hi all,

Got the bike running this weekend. Here is a video of my first ride.
Not sure how well the video is. I have a better one but I don't think it will post.
If you'd like the better one, email me and I will send it to you.

Hey,

I buttoned up the wiring last weekend and now I have lights.
About the only thing left is to hang the decals.  Smiley

That looks about like my headlight brightness .

Not bright enough to see where you're going , but just enough for others to see where you are .

I have to figure that the factory thought there would never be any kind of 'obstruction' while night riding . Wink

I know what you mean. I've been looking at replacing the tail light bulbs with LEDs. Got a couple on order... We will see how that goes.
I already have an LED for the headlight but I would have to HACk the reflector to make that work. If i can find a replacement reflector I would give that a try... Still thinking about that.

Seems  I recall someone found that a Harbor Freight light reflector would work .

Here's the thread : http://www.simplexservi-cycle.com/index.php?topic=1343.msg11818#msg11818

He uses a battery to power the light , but said the reflector was a good fit .
