Yes, it was so slowwwwww.......
my battery was getting too weak for the blinking lights to flash, and the headlight was more brown than white (I'm having my own brownout...)
The day after the parade , I installed a second batery. The flashers are on the left side battery, and all the other lights are on the right side battery. Both batteries are 12 volt by 7 amp/hours.
The platform on the headtube of the bike can hold the weight. The Suziki fairing could be removed, and I could use the platform, and I'd have a cargo/utility bicycle. But all the toggle switches are mounted in holes drilled in the fairing, so I'd have to rewire the whole thing.
I might use the batteries for an electric motor kit someday, but I don't bother on account I don't need the Police asking if it's legal.(or telling me it's not legal.)
