I just saw someone ride by with what appeared to be a very bright led (red) in their rear brakemount. Are these available for retail, or do i have to make it myself? My gf has a rear-brake mount frame; this would be pretty cool for it.

i haven't seen a rear brake mount tail light available in stores (that doesn't mean it doesn't exist though, just not that i've seen), but used some cheap p-brackets once to mount a blinkie to a rear brake mount before. it was nothing fancy; lined up two p-brackets, and snapped the clip on to them. it didn't last in my case, but i'm sure someone could whip something up that would work better.
Rear reflectors on 80's road bikes almost always come mounted to a little brakemount bracket. I used to ride around with my Cateye LD1000 mounted to a 20 year old Cateye reflector bracket. I stopped that only because I didn't want someone to steal my light.
