Diogo Vinagre came up with an inventive way to upcycle an old object, turning it into a motorcycle headlight lamp. The red retro headlight has its fair share of dings and scratches, showing that it has clearly had a full life as part of a motorcycle. Although it is worn, it gives the lamp a charming vintage quality and the motorcycle part can still shine brightly to serve its new purpose as a desk lamp.
This inspiring upcycled headlight has just a few additions that turn it into something completely new. Diogo outfitted this new unit with a stand, switch and a mechanism to help it pivot. For motorcycle headlights that are still functional, this is a great project to assure functioning parts don't go to waste.
