Dash for my '06 Volpe. I think I've managed to keep it relatively simple.
Totally copping donnamb's style. (Best form of flattery, no?)
My fall/winter commuter:
The bell (and bars) are from Soma. It says RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT! And it's nice and loud.
I'm thinking about some evergreen garland with sparkly stars for the holidays.

yes, I know the bar is 48cm, not mm. I mis-typed it

Lot's of cool pictures here , here's my flight Deck http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne...2945462&size=o
I'll have to fire up the camera tomorrow and make sure the batteries are charged... I have a lot of dashboards.
Here is one I took of my Specialized over the summer with two NR HIDs on the bar. I've since purchased a Lupine Wilma light and will acquire a Lupine Betty soon so I think it's safe to retire the NR HIDs finally.
I few weeks old, I am making some minor changes
Dinnotte Lights fit with thick elastic o-rings. Not quite elastic bands, but similar.
Nothing too exciting here.
Just my 'puter. My Light is mounted above the front brake caliper.
My Electra Townie Balloon 3 dashboard. The extra bar on the right is a heavy duty moped mirror modified for use as a bow mount. More pictures and details in this thread: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=444390
Slayer Of Cyprinus carpio. Shoot first, ask the fish if it's hungry later.
Why am I finding myself so strangely and erotically aroused by these pictures? all of them. Mmmm, yes....
When I ride, the troubles just roll off my back.

I use battery powered lights. I'd like a Lupine Betty14 but can't afford it.
The current set up uses all AA batteries so, if you can find some good rechargeables, is ok compared to the bottle battery systems.
Waterproofing on Cateye battery lights used to be a problem but some cling film/saran wrap can solve that problem.
The mounts tend to rattle loose if they're constantly unclipped so I try and leave the lights on the bike. This isn't always possible if you're locking the bike up in a public place.
2x Cateye EL510 (replaced by EL530) either mounted on the bars or on a Minoura Space Grip

Cateye TL-LD600 on the seat post and a Cateye TL-LD1000 on the saddle bag. Replaced with 2x Cateye TL-LD1100.
shameless POWERCRANK plug

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
