    Looking for old Cabeza batteries

    Well crap. I lost one of my Cabeza batteries to old age. I am 2+ weeks from a 24 hour race and in a little bit of a tight spot.
    Anybody got some batteries laying around that became obsolete with the invention of HID??

    TD- Batteries Plus, a national franchise, has rebuilt Marwi Nightpro battery packs for me. IT was cheaper than a new battery and if you have the wire connector pieces, they can usually rebuild systems. Peace, Mike

    I was actually going to tear into the battery this weekend to see if it was a DIY. If i get intimidated I may go that route. I don't want to be riding Pisgah with a commuter LED like I did at the Burn.

    I second the Batteries Plus motion. My very first experience with them was met with " If we don't have it we'll make it". I like that kind of optimism/self assuredness. They have rebuilt Niterider, etc. and the prices are definitely cheap.

    $60, no labor, rebuilt it while I stood there
    New battery, $100+shipping, be here in awhile? No brainer.
    Thanks.
