You could get 2 old WW2 search lights and mount 1 on each mudguard. Put on a bloody big alternator to power them and if any vehicle coming towards you looks funny then fry them with full power. :eek: The lights would give out loads of heat to so would melt there tyres/ eyeballs and paint. :hoofle:

Years ago I had a Guzzi and I mounted 2 8" dia Wipac spotlights on the crash bars, 150w halogen bulbs and an uprated main beam bulb in the headlight, I'm sure some of the cars that didn't dip for me ended up driven by guys with smoking eye sockets in their skulls :hoofle:

I am new to this board, and I have a question about EMD locomotive marker lights. I have a model of a GP35, and the rear marker lights are red. Is this accurate for a GP35? Thank you...Paul

eventually I came up against a van in a narrow lane and he didn't realise the width of my trike right until he got very close.
Did you not have any lights on the mudguard? Your trike looks to be 1500mm or more wide so it should of had them to be road legal I believe.
