First up was their new Orange bike.
This thing came with nothing but 2 side led strips that weren't waterproof and I informed them last year they wouldn't last....and they died almost right after I informed them....so....that meant upgrade time.
Now, we did this build over the last month-ish....first it started with me adding the upper Coded-Addressable LEDs to the top of the canopy...then the gents over at Eidetic created a very unique reflective wrap to cover the entire thing....so all the white/silver parts POP when it's hit with headlights at night.....since the main thing with all of this was to be seen and heard at night.
Then, after it was wrapped, I came back with our gnarly Quad 6.5" Tower Speaker system with a 300w amplifier and waterproof Bluetooth controller.
It's the perfect solution for these guys.....PLENTY of power to blast everyone's eardrums within a block or two and easy use of the controls for the driver or even riders/pedalers.
This is definitely the bike you wanna ride!
NExt up.....Ol Red!
Now...you may recognize this beast as it was the first in the fleet for this company....I retrofitted some custom speaker pods and headunits over the years...and that turned out to be somewhat of a failure....mainly because it was somewhat complicated to use and started out with "I have these speakers a buddy gave me....can we use them?"
So...now that we have these sweet amplified tower pods...they are the go-to for any weird audio needs down the road.
I ripped out the 6 speakers and custom fiberglass pods, as well as the regular radio....and installed the exact same setup that the Orange bike got...so now the bikes are identical audio-wise.
As you can see, the speakers also have RGB accent lights, which go with the existing LED strips; which were on an ancient LED controller...so that's been removed and converted over to Bluetooth as well.
If you see these bikes rollin' downtown....give em a try sometime...they are a good time!!
