Is everyone familiar with the MR16 "landscape" led lights?

These are not at all 1156 bulbs. I finally scrapped the idea of fitting them into the existing Puch lamp. I just mounted them in place of it on a small adjustable (for beam height) rail.

These are technological serendipity to the Puch. They have their OWN REFLECTOR. It's built in. YOU choose the beam angle depending on which one you buy. They are miniature floods/spots. Two pin. AC input only (they live for what's coming out of our unregulated e50). They just love the range of volts as well coming out of these engines stock. Even better, there is a HUGE range of color temperatures, beam angles, and lumen outputs that you can spec for any one part number.

The 530 lumen with 35degree beam @ 3000K color is damn near perfect for my Puch. My unmodified e50 has been running a pair of them all summer long without a hiccup. No modifications or intermediate circuitry whatsoever. Straight up wired to the lamps. And usually less than 10 dollars each.

Like I mentioned above, I plan to try a pair of 720 lumen, 3300K, 25 degree spread bulbs next spring.

And no one, I mean not a single oncoming vehicle, ever once flashed me with high beams in over six months of frequent night riding in town and country. Some people in forums get their panties all knotted up over light modifications and the thoughtlessness and danger of it all. If anyone flashed me I'd PROMPTLY make adjustments necessary. (edited)
