    Changed out the conventional bulb on my B6 for and LED bulb. The difference is amazing. Probably 10 times as bright. Both lights shown below are powered by 2 D Cell batteries. Great for bikes that are ridden in low light conditions. The bulbs screw directly in the existing socket. It's an E 10 one watt flashlight bulb from superbrightleds.com. The bulbs are about $10 plus shipping. I paid nearly $7 for the last regular bulb. If figure I can make up the difference between the two in battery savings. The LED uses a small portion of the power of a conventional bulb. 20171231_153701.jpg LED bulb 20171231_153710.jpg Conventional Bulb
