With a little know-how and a few electrical connections I made these:

3mm Drill bit: $2.00
LED’s, resistors, connectors, & misc. wire: $10.00
A few hours of my time: $0.00

Homemade Bad A$$ turn signals: Priceless

I still need to seal the back side to weather proof them but they came out pretty nice. I used 5000mcd lights so they are hella bright.

After this weekend’s ride up 245, I was told you can barely see my brake lights so that's my next project.

sorry for the low quality video my camera sucks with video.

About 8 hours total. Now that I have some experience doing it and learning from errors I would say I could do them in about 5 hours.

I wish I could take credit for the idea but I have to give props to BK and TripageLED.com (http://www.TripageLED.com) for the idea. I am just way to cheap to spend the money to have someone else do this for me.

Nice work Eric, but I would rather pay the 45 bucks to have someone do it for me and spend the 8 hours riding instead. :)
