    Something different?

    This light was designed for a custom motorcycle. I got much of the information for the led on this site. Perhaps it is more of a machining project than a lighting project... But I'll bet it's different.

    The bike it will go on:


    The light:


    3 XM-G's with a 700mA

    Very cool, bike and light! On the fly adjustable focal length or will it be fixed once on the bike?

    It'll be fixed focal length- gotta keep it simple. It will however have a manual actuated high/low beam pivoting shield..

    damn, that is one cool looking light! Very Jules Verne Is that copper or brass that you're using? I'd love to see more details of the set up, particularly the driver.

    Chopsmitty,that's some very nice work. I am very interested in seeing the high/low pivoting beam shield and the outer housing of the light. Will it be built into some sort of fairing as part of the bikes body work?

    I'll get more detailed shots when we get back on the project. It's stalled for this weekend because we are picking up our new bulldog puppy...

    It is brass, copper and stainless. The light will attach to the top of the steering stem just like it sits in the pictures.
