My build so far.

#1
This is my bike build us far. It's been raining for 3 days straight now 4. I got bored so I thought I'd post where I was at on my bike build. I have completed my rear blinkers brake light and parking light. Finish my front fender installed a reflector as stated by law. I have a headlight also coming. Mounted the 12-volt motorcycle battery to the middle of the frame. I wanted to run my lights off a different battery then the one I will be running on my wheel hub to get further distance out of the bike. Most roads are 12 ft across, and you have to share the highway with cars and there are no shoulders. So for me it's all about safety and keeping my butt from getting ran over for those who think it's tacky. It's perfectly fine but this is how I choose to build this for my safety. Hope everyone has a great day

So, you're running the lights of the motorcycle battery? If so, why not just purchase a multi-port USB power bank from Anker and run USB front and rear lights? It would be a lot more compact and lighter. Just my 2-cents.

Honestly I don't know what that is. I've recently transitioned into the English faith and there's a lot of things that I don't understand simply learning how to use this phone was a pain in the butt for me. So I'm building the bike off of what knowledge I've learned and hoping for the best.

It's all good. Go with what you know and build from there.

Here's a 3-port USB portable charger from Anker that I was referring to. They also make an inexpensive 2-port version that I use when traveling to keep my phone charged. I'm sure there are some cheaper knock-offs. Now, connect a USB-powered headlight, tail light, and even your phone to the charger and you're good to go for quite awhile before the charger itself has to be recharged.

That looks neat but I don't know if it would be able to run all those lights for as long as it's 12 volt battery. And I'm assuming I have to rewire all the lights or buy new ones with something that you call a USB
