Flashing rear brake light

Postby tunaboy » Thu May 02, 2013 6:13 am



I was in my car and saw a bike with a separate flashing rear brake light. It looked like an add on and was mounted about 4" under the regular brake light. It was about 3" square and quickly flashed on and off when the rider used his brakes. Any idea where I could find one? I have been wanting to add a 2nd brake light to my wing and one like this would work great.

Our company sells a light bar used on motorcycles.there about 15" long.
The lamp is refered to as a "signal alert".
They come in many forms and widley avaiable on the net.

Another option is to add a high brightness LED of any style and attach a "brake light flasher" control module to it....I used one($15) on a 1800 with added LED lamps replacing the original ones....
Step on the brake and they would flash fast for 2 seconds (alert) and then go to steady burn.
There avaiable on the net too..(Car Truck Scooter BRAKE LIGHT FLASHER BLINKER 36 Modes )

Could be a set of Hyper-Lites: http://cyclemax.com/inc/searchresults?s ... r&n=184550

I've seen these in person, and they are blindingly bright. Very attention-getting.
