No I am not selling these. I bought two for the grand kids bikes for 99 cents with free shipping on Ebay. I was amazed at how bright these are, either steady or blinking plus 2 laser beams shoot downwards. Law or no law when I drive back rarely at night I am putting some on the rear of my Model T. They take 2 aaa batteries The two bright lines behind the bike are the lasers giving the bike a safety lane ? from cars
Hmmm. A laser beam, you say?
OK Tom now that made me laugh this early in the morning. Who would not want a laser beam aimed at the clowns harassing our older cars!
Where did they buy them??
David, how about a link?
Steve...I just went to e-bay (err, T-bay) and typed in "bicycle lights" in the search box and a number of them, including this one came up. Haven't found them for 99 cents just yet, but even the first link was only some $4+.
Woops! there it is! about 10-12 items down! My bad...not patient enough
Just ordered a couple. We'll see how good they are.
Don't ride that thing in a circle or the center will drop out and you and the bicycle will fall through like Wile E. Coyote.
Probably worth covering the innermost two lasers, if I saw two lights and four red lit lines in front of me at night I'd probably hit it while trying to figure out what I was looking at. Almost happened once when I came across an oddly lit drunk on a moped.
Just ordered two. They have a couple left.
I just ordered two also. I need something because I drive in the evenings and get caught out late sometimes if dinner runs over due to all the B.S.
Wow glad I could be of some help. Like I say amazing for 99 cents and free shipping. When someone comes up with an easy mounting method let us all know
I just bought 5 more for 4.90 they have about 50m left with free shipping Thursday at noon
Others sold out.
This still has a few
You can go to any bike shop and pick up l.e.d. tail lights. Not .99 more like $20 They will strobe or blink back and forth or stay on.
Theres also a L.E.D. 5 bulb headlight the size of a match book. It will blink also or strobe.Recharges thru a usb port. I used mine at Hershey at dark so people could see me on my bike. Great for Antique cars.
Yes Fred but 99 cents !
Mister Thrifty likes it!
In a recent posting someone quoted a state law specifying red flashing "hazard lights" for slow moving vehicles. But I noticed also that the state law (forget which state) also said, "simultaneous flashing". Do any of these nifty LED lites have a provision to slave one light to another so that both flash at the same time ?
I'd be you would be more likely stopped if your lights were flashing randomly rather than simultaneously.
Another concern in that same post was that a T driver might be admitting that he was a safety hazard by using flashing lights. But truckers use their flashers all the time on uphill grades when they can't maintain highway speeds. And nobody pulls trucks off the road as a hazard just because they can't maintain 55 mph on an uphill grade. So I would view the "admitting that you are a hazard" to be a non-issue providing you use a legal flashing system.
Well if they pull me over they better have a line of Amish buggies and all the bicycles that are on the road pulled over too! Most of the Amish buggies around here look like a flashing Christmas tree going down the road. I'll take my chances with a ticket and be seen rather then get hit.
Sometimes I get the impression that these horror stories of cops pulling over antique cars for these ridiculous infractions are the imagination of $#!*house lawyers. But I've been wrong before.
Just bought 2 for $.99 each. Free USPS shipping
No thanks. I'll stick with the correct, Ford script marked tailight that looks like it belongs on a Model T. You can always find a brighter bulb for it if needed.
Dave mount it so that it can be removed easily when you get to that show never hurts to make yourself more visible to the jerk who is texting behind you telling whoever they wont believe what he is following!
This isn't a replacement for the Ford light. This is a separate piece of equipment, unattached to the car, like a GPS device or a flashlight. You stick it on when you need it. Otherwise it rides under the back seat or in the trunk. If I get stuck out after dark I want to be seen, and two bright tail lights at fender height are a lot more visible than the low-down stock Ford light, even if it has a brighter bulb.
I know how to make that laser work!
If I activate a bunch of them with a sensor that comes with back up proximity buzzer I can vaporize anyone that gets too close!
Dick: I believe you are referring to Texas Transportation Code Article 547.331 that provides in part of lights plural spaced as far apart as practical and flashing simultaneously. I believe the more expensive LED's can be wired to flash at the same time.
You can never tell what will happen when a PO is having a bad day. Some are wise enough to interpret the purpose of the law and others use it to stop you for other reasons. And few have a sense of humor.
I was approaching a 4-way stop near town and a local PO was directing traffic through the intersection trying to keep the exit ramp from the highway from stacking up. When it came my time, he waved me on. As I was passing him, I said, "Stop signs not working again?". He wasn't mused and said; "Just traffic control" in a gruff voice. Well anyway, I thought it was a smart quip and smiled all the way home.
I finally got around to installing the laser warning lamp on my T the other day. I made a simple bracket that goes between the license plate and the spare tire carrier with a tab that I screwed a piece of 1" dowel to for the mounting post. Because it is center mounted the lasers don't cover the outer sides like it would on a bike. I angled it so they spread out to cover the corners providing clearance guides for the rear. I am happy with the way it turned out, and for a bargain price, too!
Bob The link you posted back in october comes up to be a pink cover for some kind of a telephone. :>)
That is an old link- how strange that it goes to a new listing!!

I can't find any for $.99 with free shipping any more.
Charges $1.99 for the lamp with free shipping, still a good deal.

I do not understand what everyone finds so great about that "Little" bicycle light.
TSC and lots of hardware stores have an amber "Magnetic base" tail light. You can set them to flash or on steady. They have 18 LED's that are very bright. It measures about 7 inches by 3 inches. With the magnetic base, removal or installation is not a problem unless you have a fiber glass body or an early aluminum body. They are powered by 4 AA batteries that last for a long time with the limited use most of us give our T model cars at night.
Also, I value my LIFE at a higher price than that so called $.99 mini bargain.
