What I did today

The old horn on the bike has started rusting.

I’m probably going to clean it up and keep it because it’s original equipment, but I always hated the way it sounds. It’s like a high pitched buzzer rather than a horn…sounds wimpy.

I wanted to try something that would sound more like a car horn. Harbor freight had one for $10. Yes, I know I can get better ones, but I was a little leery about how it would look and sound so I didn’t want to invest a bunch of money and then hate it.

2016-04-02 16.55.14So I went with the cheapos (yes, some assembly still required).

Admittedly, they look a little cheesy, but not as bad as I’d thought they might. They fit fine and I really like the sound a LOT more than the stock horn.

Here’s a little video, first the old horn (I did this on my work bench with my battery charger, so it’s a little shaky when I connect the power), then the new one.
