Replacement levers (yes again)

After breaking the brake lever in my crash, I bought some new ones off Ebay.  They look like Pazzos, but at $38 they are cost effective and very good quality.  My last set lasted a year with no wear, despite all weathers and have only been replaced due to the crash

Fitting an LED taillight

I got sick of a red taillight and clear indicators, so I fitted an integrated unit (e-marked).  It plugged straight into the standard socket, and a blue and yellow wire connected to the live feeds for the respective indicators.  I have kept the standard indicators for added visibility and it looks great

I also stuck silverised tape inside the indicator housing to increase the light output

and now with LED indicators:
