    G'day all,

    I've had a few accidents on a motorbicycle for some crazy reason..?
    Stupid, stupid accidents

    i went over a bump about 10cm high, smashed the front and rear rim
    Went over a stormwater drain and somehow I got a deep gash in my arm, about the size of a 50c piece, Tearing the through the tissue and skin, No stitches yet, quit while im ahead.

    Anywho, I have ridden a mates dirtbike (peewee 80) around a fair bit and have decided to buy a 125cc Quadbike.

    Now back to the main topic.
    This bike has a Key electric start, Ran off a 12V, now wiring up a dynamo would allow this to have a charging system, if not already having one.

    Anyhow what i want to do is run a lighting system, 2 rear and front orange flashers, 2 Rear red lights and 2 front lights.

    Now, what I want to know is what supplies I would need example: Flasher relays, Globes, Casing, Wiring etc.
    I also wonder what kinda globe or led gives off the best light and uses a low amount.

    Thanks and sorry for the long post, I will also be adding a control box for all lights and turning signals
    My brother wants a setup exactly like this on motorbicyle, thanks in advance
