homemade led brake lights Homemade Motorcycle Brake Lights

As a motorcyclist, visibility is paramount to the safety of the rider. With this in mind, Pete Mills wired up his own super-bright brake light assembly using bright red LEDs. Not only are the lights powered by the onboard electrical system, but they can be toggled to either stay solid, or blink depending on the rider’s choice. This was done using an ATTiny85 microcontroller.
