Too halfassed?

I recently got a warning on my '77 kawi ke-175 for driving with an inoperable headlight in the DAYTIME. Cars around here never have lights on during the day, and I see bikes without them all the time,

So I figured all I had to do was make my brake lights work to drive it around in the daytime. But apparently I was wrong.

The 6volt charging system on the bike is trashed, and that is more work than I want to deal with, so to fix the brake light, I have a 6v lantern battery under the seat, and it is wired to the foot brake switch, as the front brake switch is destroyed. And that powers the original brake light bulb.

They work great, I just have to buy a new lantern battery every once in a while.


I was wondering if yall think I could duct-tape or hard mount a flashlight to my front fender and use that as a daytime headlight?

The bike will not be driven at night or in the evening, and it is a $100 old sloppy bitch of a bike that is just driven from trail to trail, and I want to put the least amount of money into it I can.
