Miniature Bicycles, Scooters & Motorbikes with lights!
Based on original figures from major suppliers, these tiny, but superbly detailed bicycles, scooters and motorbikes have been fitted with miniature LED lighting – warm white at the front and bright red for the rear lights.
The front LEDs are supplied either as a “warm white” or “super gold warm white” as appropriate for the actual cycle or motor cycle to give the most realistic colour. On push bikes, the LED is affixed slightly ahead of the cycle frame to replicate a typical cycle lamp and are coloured to match the main cycle colour. The rear lights are coloured red so the lights are clearly visible in day light.
The wiring to light up these miniature models has been cleverly secreted within the model itself, so is not visible. Each of the LEDs has a common (black) wire with a second, separate connection for the front lamp (red wire) and rear light (green or blue). The light intensity is realistically preset with the resistors already fitted, but can be altered as desired by fitting different value resistors.
The fine connecting wires (0.12mm diameter) are surrounded by a foam rubber tube, which can be fed through holes in the baseboard thus fixing the cycle in position on the road without the need for adhesive. The flexibility allows the cycle to be tilted for corners without damage to the model.
The LED lighting can be connected to any DC or AC source between 6 to 20 volts (suitable for most model railway transformers). Connection is made to the supply source by means of the metal wires from the resistors.
