Hey everyone both new and old,
It's been a long and rough time for me since I've been on but I'm hoping to be back more. I won't go into lengthy details of my absence but it can be seen as a blessing for everyone. In my absence I have been continuing my education and experience with electrical engineering. I wanted to create something that I could show potential employers so they can see that I have the skills and drive to create products from idea to finish. Thus, I have created a new LED tail light option for the Buell community!
We have a lot of great options for LED tail lights from the affordable Clear Alternatives to the amazingly high quality XB Lights from Rob. However, the CA option can fall short of some peoples desire for high brightness and Rob's XB lights may be priced higher than some can afford. That is where my product comes in. I am offering a great selection of lighting styles and options to fit just about everyone's budget. I also offer the ability for the community to get behind their own chosen styles/designs of the lights!
So without further ado, let me introduce everyone to our new tail light options!
Let me start with some basic specs that all lights will have-
High brightness 5730 LEDS; Red= 1000-1500mcd/25-35LM Each, Yellow= 1000-1500mcd/25-35LM Each, White= 50-55LM
Over voltage protection- Each board and lighting section has its own voltage controller that prevents worry from system over voltages should they ever occur for peace of mind in your investment.
Water resistance coating- To ensure your light will be protected from the elements I coat each light with a clear conformal urethane coating. (picture shows light working in water below)
A 3 year Warranty- I want you to know that this isn't a one time deal. I will stand behind my design 100% should a manufacture issue arise. I offer a 100% refund within the 1st year and a 50% refund or exchange after. You can use this 50% off on any product in the line up or simply have the money returned to you. If you wish to have a repair instead of an exchange you can sent the unit to me during the 3 years for a free evaluation and repair attempt. Users must ship at their own cost to me, I will offer free shipping on return.
Constant Current LED Drivers- I use an AL8805 Driver for each LED section to ensure the LEDS are powered to their maximum potential.
Community Choice designs- Have a certain layout you prefer? Don't like what I came up with? No problem! Pitch your new lighting layout to everyone and if you get a minimum of 3 other people to commit to buying it, I will design it and show you a render of the new design. Note: There are limitations on the amount of LEDS that can be used so designs may have to be altered slightly.
Current design is top and bottom rows are running lights, middle two are brake, outer and second from end is turn signals. See dropbox link for further pictures.
Free shipping on all orders! Who doesn't love free shipping?
New connectors included on all lights. To keep costs affordable lights are designed to fit in the existing housing but require the users to splice into their old wires, however they choose. This is a simple process that can be done anyway the user wants, even without cutting wires by using items such as Posi-Tap. If you have any issues or concerns with this please say so, I plan on creating basic instructions to be included with the lights. No drilling required! I will upload a picture of the connector to the dropbox link tonight.
Now lets get to the lighting options!
The first light option is called the Economy option. It features the best value for users looking for a simple bright and basic running and brake light. NO TURN SIGNALS INCLUDED!
Running LEDS= 25 total (Red)
Brake LEDS= 20 total (Red)

Second Option- Base model. This model includes the introduction to turn signals. However the turn signals are only available in RED. NO OPTIONS FOR YELLOW TURN SIGNALS. Pictures were taken during the day in full sun, unlike most companies who show off night time shots I want my friends to know exactly how they look in the environment they will use it. (Note: Due to how cameras capture pictures, the product may vary in perceived brightness)
Running LEDS= 16 (Red)
Brake LEDS= 16 (Red)
Turn Signals= 6 Each (Red)
(This model has been produced and tested)

Third Option- Mid Model. This model includes the same amount of brake and running LEDS but double the turn signal LEDS so that Amber LEDS can be used (May change if production model does not meet standards).
Running LEDS= 16 (Red)
Brake LEDS= 16 (Red)
Turn LEDS= 12 Each (Red/Amber)

Additional attachment- Don't think I've forgotten about the License plate light. For those of us that have the clear license plate piece on our tail lights you can purchase a light for peace of mind and law enforcement. If you want to buy the LP light later down the road you can! Just send me your light and I can attach it. (User pays shipping to me, I will pay for shipping back)
License plate LEDS- 12 (White)

Group buy details and payment information-
Since I am doing this myself for everyone I sadly can not offer these units one by one currently. However this is not a problem as my group buy requirements are low. For any one product I can build them with a min order of 3 units. That includes custom requested units. That is my min board ordering requirements so I will not force our community to buy more either.
Group buys can occur anytime someone gets 3 people to commit to buying (sending payment). I will strive to deliver products within two weeks after order but please allow up to 4 weeks. I am building these part time after my full time job.
Timeline- Week one- Orders received, Payments confirmed, Orders sent to manufacture for board production
Week two- Board delivery, Building begins, testing (first runs may be held longer for additional testing)
Week three- Orders shipped out, Or, Changes made to designs, revision sent to manufacture
Week four- revision boards built, tested, shipped.
Payments- Payments can be sent via paypal goods option to Treahuggs@gmail.com or https://www.paypal.me/thuggs. I use paypal since it's the most trusted way to send money online and suggest sending money as payment for goods and services so that everyone is protected and secured.
If you prefer other payment options such as cashiers checks, etc please contact me and we will see what we can do.
Closing- I hope I have not left anything out but as always if you have any questions please feel free to ask. I am also active on the facebook group as Trea Huggs, you may contact me on facebook as well. I know some new members may not know me but the old time members can vow that I am a trusted member that has never done our community wrong. I use to create the calendar a few years back. Let us continue to grow and learn. I am hopeful to one day be able to design and produce universal products for motorcycles such as bar end turn signals and such. If you are happy with the lights I produce and have another motorcycle you want my lights in, send me the housing and I will design a light for it! (A version of this will also be posted on facebook soon, also possibly badweatherbikers too.)
Sorry for the long post! Happy Buelling!
