In 2003 I learned how to create my own LED halos.
That first little business turned into FlyRyde a year later.
These were fun to build and at the time looked awesome! Now there are WAY better Halos on the market!
Creating my own Angel Eye Halos 18 years ago, totally changed my life. What are you going to create?
If you enjoyed this, here's a ton of quick videos you'll enjoy!

So before i learned how to solder, i had to buy three packs of these just so i could get the eight leds that i needed for my four set of angel eye rings. I would put two leds in each ring, but because i needed eight leds, total i'd have to buy three packs, and these were 10 bucks per pack. Eventually, i started using this round acrylic rod and so between this and the rod. I was spending about 35 dollars to make these and i was only charging 40 bucks now, after a little while of making different sizes and shapes, i came up with a set that i was eventually able to sell for about a hundred bucks now, just from learning How to solder the leds myself, i got the cost of each set of leds down to about two dollars.

So if i could turn this into this and then it turned into fly ride, what can you create?.

    I'm working on lasers in my eyes like Superman to cut open anything with permaseal. Should be all set by about 2050.

    You stuck with it, bruh. Much respect. I remember when that was a huge deal. Went to radio shack and bought out all the blue LEDs all the time, the white ones were way cheaper, pennies on the dollar, replacement rods for Venetian blinds at hardware stores, all to make these kits. Got incredible skills at baking headlights, and refreshing them to install the kits. I never made that much money on it because "friends" took advantage of me, then I started an aftermarket parts business and lost it all to bigger businesses. I gave up ultimately because my "friend" group wasn't supportive and neither was my family. So really, truly, much love and respect to you for making it work though double jobs and pushing the passion for the community. STAYING positive is the best secret that anyone can learn from all of this. If you can make dreams a reality, so can anyone else. I should take my own advice and shut up. ✌🏾
