Kimura smallest headlight/flashlight/standlight


Kimura Flashlight/Stand Light

Traditionally, a flashlight provides lighting when stopped or moving very slowly, as a backup to a generator light. (Of course, many modern headlamps have a built-in stand light.) Old-style incandescent bulbs provide only an hour or so of light from a heavy load of C-cell batteries. This flashlight takes advantage of modern LED technology to provide many hours of illumination powered by a lightweight lithium battery.
Machined from billet, yet evoking tradition, it's a beautiful piece of equipment, as well.

This model has been revised making it smaller: The length is now 115 mm where the earlier version was 136 mm. The bracket is no longer included. Price is the same.

Bracket for Head or Tail Light
Where the light needs to be offset to fit as illustrated in the photo at the top of this page. Screws included.

price: $12

Kimura Frame-mounted Tail Light
Mounts to a special braze-on on the seat tube.

There are now two variations on this LED light.
TL06A has an internally threaded 6mm hole that mounts onto a 6 mm X 1.0 threaded frame braze-on. It also includes a threaded hollow stud that can be screwed into a hole of the appropriate thread if that's what the frame is fitted with.
TL06C is different in that the rear of the housing screws off and a small screw is fitted from the inside facing out the rear. This screws into an internally threaded fitting or braze-on. Once attached, the main part of the light body screws back onto the rear section.

price: $95
