This weekend Max and I got the lights converted and functional! I am using 2 1 watt cool white LEDs available from Adafruit. They are wired in series on a 6v circuit from a BEC (which takes battery input and gives a regulated 6v output). The switch is also from Adafruit.
The setup puts out an amazing amount of light.. More than enough to actually drive in the dark!
LED lights mounted inside the original reflectors
Frontend assembled again
Pushbutton on/off with led light ring
Headlights on (in the dark)
Wiring harness mess (work in progress)
