    Finally, I can report we successfully tested our light system this weekend, after a great amount of work, effort, and research. The system operated flawlessly producing 80-90 watts, and 12 volts. This means all auto lighting is adaptable, and we plan to offer a complete lighting kit, including a sissy bar with LED lights. A video will be posted showing the completed bike lit up like a christmas tree, and I have to write a provisional patent before disclosing the details. Now, it's possible to take the Grubee engine kit and make it into a licensed moped, that can be driven on any street legally. I should be ready to
    disclose more in about two weeks. I need some rest. Mike S

    This sounds great, we've been waiting for years for this.

    It's a real solution that took some time to develop. There just isn't a simple low cost solution to this problem. Almost all headlights on mopeds use 35 watt 12 volt bulbs, so we aimed at the Whizzer spec of 88 watts, with a 35 watt headlight. To see it light up after so much work is exciting. Mike S

    Details please, what components did you use? pics?

    Details will have to wait until a provisional patent is applied for. I'm sure you understand after working so hard, it's important to do it right. Mike S

    I hope its good if applying for a patent.
    Good Luck!

    Right now, we are installing a complete lighting horn package, including turn signals front and back, stop/brake light, horn, and a sissy bar that has neon lighting on it, and we may also use a lighted skull on the sissy bar. It's a chopper, and I'll post a video when complete, and after the patent is applied for. Mike S

    Just don't try to patent 'ideas' which are common practice... It doesn't do you any good, and it doesn't help users.

    I promise you I won't patent obvious concepts. Having been granted nine patents already by the US patent office, I'm fairly experienced at what is patentable and also how to write a patent. But thanks for the support. Mike S

    I'm eagerly looking forward to the details.

    the only detail that i'll try to pry out of you right now...if you would, please...

    is this system engine-specific or -independant?

    OK, we left you alone for 3 weeks.

    OK, we left you alone for 3 weeks.

    How does it work?

    Will it work with frame mount machines or just the rear mount?

    Any details? Pics? Video? :rolleyes:

  14. Is it just me or is Mike coming off as a vendor trying to drum up busnes or investors. by baiting the waters???

    But, what's the harm in that?
    I wish he would answers Augi's questions.
  17. Lotsa luk, we most likley wont even see pics untill he gtets his patent. what I wonder is if he realizes that patents wont stop us from copying the design as long as we dont sell them.:evil:

    I'm not real happy with this forum, because of too many negative comments. I have had thoughts of not offering the solution at all on this site. I have spent quite a bit of time and money to solve the lighting problem, handling mechanical and complicated electrical engineering problems and have gotten some nasty comments on this site for doing so. You'd think folks would be happy to know someone is seriously working on the problem and making progress. If it's so easy, then anyone on this site is totally free to develop a solution on their own. People don't understand the time needed for testing, development, waiting for parts, the costs, trying several solutions until one works, and the cost of all the research. And I know what a patent protects, as I have been a a patented inventor for some time. So I won't disclose all the details. You'll see a solution, but not every detail of the solution, certainly not enough to copy the solution. It's just good business. Mike S

    so you are just a vendor.


    I thought this forum was to share ideas and solutions openly in a public forum.

    So by what you said, you are simply a vendor waiting to make some money.

    You do not plan on sharing any solutions with anyone in the forum that does not pay for it.

    Shoot, this forum is for people to share information and to help one another.

    I personally believe your posts should be in the Vendor area or the BUY/SELL/TRADE area.

    What do you think Guys and Gals?

    Now, I am not saying that I am not interested in your ideas and I am not saying I will not purchase it once it is finally done.

    We have been listening to the promises for months (yes months) only to find out you simply plan on selling your ideas to us.
