New Build. Yep, its a useless pedal light. mfpmax has suggested a self defense light.

This just happened and it is not likely to happen again. This may just be the most useless flashlight ever made. Sorry for the crappy picture. PM me what you think it is and well see who gets it right. There may be a prize for the correct answers in a draw. Then maybe there wont be. Anyway have fun and all comments good or bad will be taken on the chin. 

 

Thanks for joining in. Here's a few more shots of this absolutely fantastically useless light. It started of at work the other day when one of the guys there bought a new set of pedals for his bike and this was getting thrown out. I should of let him throw it out.

And the best cigar grip in the whole flashlight world.

my first impression was a built in light on an old style bike or motorcycle, but it looks like the side of a bicycle pedal (or possibly the side of a motorbike pedal)

Neutral white 3C prints would be preferable? Must be a yuppy thing. Wink  I could spend the next three months in Photoshop turning blueprints into 3C tints but I aint. If I gave you the blueprints anyway I reckon you would only try and pedal them.

Do you want to know so that you may pedal something? Unless its pain killers I'm not interested in your pedalingSmile. You guys are to smart for me. I reckon a donation will have to go somewhere. Any thoughts, keeping in mind the wife does not make that much money. She working three jobs I should be loaded. (If you think I'm a p___k for talking like this we have been going out with each other since 1980 and the girl I married gives it back better than I give it to her). If she worked another two jobs I would be able to retire.Cry

That 20mm housing fits perfectly in that pedal!  I think it has potential for some serious awesomeness.  Looks very art deco/steam punk in that pic. 8)

That’s what I thought it was too… But all this talk about a bike pedal has me confused…

She already is but spends the extra cash on her PTL.

If what I read about what it is is correct, then no it won’t be. Because it would illuminate out the side(well if it’s floody enough the road) and would be very useful. Highlighting the area around the biker so that people in cars can better see them.
