    I just got the word that the light assemblies will be delivered to me on Monday 11/19. They are delayed as the shipper was shut down for a few days while Sandy was visiting. I'll finish them that week and get them out on Black Friday!

    Still waiting for payment from a last few. Thanks to all of you who took care of it. Have a great weekend!

    If it isn't too late, please add me to the list. If I missed this batch, then please add my name to the next batch.

    Looks like a great product.

    OK everyone, I picked up the lights this afternoon. I'll start assembling them tomorrow and Wednesday and will get them all shipped out by Friday at the latest. I took Wednesday off from work to crank them out and get some Thanksgiving chores done. Hope you all have a great holiday!

    As for everyone else who expressed an interest, I started a new group buy list. I'll keep everyone posted on how fast it grows.

    Thanks very much for dedicating holiday time to this! I, for one, certainly don't expect it.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all! I took today to spend with family but the lights will be finished up and shipped tomorrow from the fine rainy state of Oregon.

    All but lights for BlackBeast and jcshew....holding per their arrangements.

    For the rest of you, here's to the start of their US Post journey tomorrow! :beer

    Thanks for your patience everyone. I know with Sandy delaying their shipping to me and then them arriving on Thanksgiving week it was some added delay that I was unhappy with, so my apologies for that.

    For those on the waiting list, I plan on doing them in smaller batches if there is a continued interest; this many at once took a large chunk of two days.

    Let me know what you think.

    I'll post up all the installation instructions here so everyone can see the color photos clearly. Print and save for yourself.

    My light showed up today. I won't have time to install it until this weekend but it certainly looks well put together. Good job.

    Got mine in and installed today. Install took me about 45 minutes and it works like a charm.

    It's a well built light, good work and thanks!

    Hi Greg,

    I received the light Wednesday. Excellent quality and great instructions! I look forward to installing (recovering from knee surgery). Thanks again and let me know if you develop anything else for the bike that you want to sell.

    Regards,
    Chris
