101 uses for a borked rear light

Well one use really.

We use a cheap Motorola Moto E for navigation, running Viewranger in the UK and OSMAnd abroad, but its battery does not last the day so we have a battery pack to keep it going.  Our new shiny, that I may have mentioned elsewhere, has a larger diameter stoker stem requiring a 30mm clamp.  Making use of an old Cateye seatpost fitting and a borked rear lamp casing, thanks Biggsy, we can now use one side of the battery with the new shiny and the other side usung a different mounting clamp on our Dawes.

Nice. I like that it's mounted beneath, out of the way of hands. Your 'lanyard as safety chain' is a good idea too.

Not sure if it counts but used two spare brackets from rear led lights as mountings for mud guards on a bike with no proper fittings.
