This is a 6-person powered pedal bike.....technically 7 if you could the driver.
This badboy can actually rip if you get enough people on it....not so much if it's just you trying to move it around the shop!
They've had this bike for a little under a year and it barely had any lighting and no audio....that needed to change.
The Front lighting consisted of 2 small H1 powered halogen bulbs in tiny reflector pods and the rear brake lights 'used' to be T20 powered housing...until they stopped working....so when it showed up they had 2 handheld flashlights duct taped to the sides of the bike......obviously not Trax Customs standard!!
So, i just happened to have the perfect LED modules to retrofit the front headlight housings.....I used my Morimoto DRL.1 modules and they fit with relative ease and looked as if they belonged....then I used my Morimoto DRL.5 module for a lower center light for some foreground illumination.
The rear was an issue....since this bike isn't the biggest of the 3 PnP brigade, I wanted to make this thing obnoxiously bright for on-road use so they wouldn't get hit....so used 3 of my Morimoto DRL.5 modules as 'running lights'.....since there isn't a 'brake' circuit....
I retrofitted the 2 existing locations with the pods and then mounted a 3rd center pod lower by the rear wheels....they are blindingly bright....so...you're welcome if you're ever behind this thing...because your retinas will hate you!
I custom soldered up a 6-circuit 16' 'web' of codeable/controllable LED lighting that lights up the entire underside of this twisted metal mobile sculpture...and it's all controllable via a wireless remote.....it's not 100% noticeable as the 2 other bike bars....but i didn't want the LEDs to be seen....I just wanted the 'glow' to be present....which is achieved.....I saw this thing downtown a week or so later and it pops!.
The Orange bike bar had a Wetsounds sound bar installed before I got my hands on it....which I swiftly removed without prejudice.....but saved it because I knew we'd possibly be reusing it!
So it came time to add audio to the bike......luckily the wetsounds bar is the 20" version...so it BARELY fit between the drivers legs....which provides easy control over the sound controls...which is perfect!
All of this needed to be powered...so I fabricated a nice little removable battery rack and installed the biggest battery possible without impeding on the pedalers cycling motions. So far so good from the owner...they've said the system will run a few tours without a charge needed....so that's as good as could be expected when doing a hybrid system like this without having hardly any room to mount anything.
