Cool the fun in internally wiring a bicycle

let me start off by saying wiring a bicycle internally is a pain in the ass. but the end result is worth it i decided to add some under fender lighting. last time i did this it looked great, at night during the day you see wires and zip ties everywhere . today i drilled the frame in two spots and ran my wiring through im happy with the results so far. next is my cousins langster





converting the cheap tailight to a halogen LED and using a halogen led converted schwinn headlight in the front.

found the bulb its not halogen but if its good for a car its good for a bike the part number is LI-1156B it works on the large lowrider tail lights barely fits in there but its pretty bright. they only come in blue or red tho. best part is i can splice this in the the under fender LEDs and not loose out on power. off to modify the front headlight with a hyper white light

Just a heads-up that I believe it is illegal to have a blue light on your vehicle. I think that can only be used on road vehicles that are emergency vehicles.
