I did something similar to my old bike. Where I separated the lens and the tail light housing and put in a pcb board with about 80 LEDs.
As far as price on selling these I guess it really depends on A) how long each build takes B) how much is your time worth to you.
I find that side projects are really hard to make any money on and I generally break even.
this is what we did to ours too. We took apart the lens and
replaced the LED board with the new integrated....it was cheaper
and thats all that was out at the time that I could afford. Now,
of course, there are several plug and play options. Im sure it
wont be long for the same for you guys. In the mean time.....this
might be a good option and opportunity...wtg bro!!!
This is all up to you, when i do side work i charge $35 an hour and mark up 20% on parts, but that it still a huge savings over what someone would normally pay. If you are willing to share your knowledge and take some detailed pics i would not mind listening and looking.
Im looking at doing the same thing. Im making a custom PCB board and accouple of small relays and voltage regulators and about 24 LEDs. Its not that hard of work if you have a basic understanding of electrical work its just time consuming and Im still waiting on getting my bike back.
