Here is a project that involves the electric side of your bike or car! we are building a 12V Bulb flashing circuit and I fully documented the necessary steps to achieve a working circuit for such purpose.
You will not need advanced electronics skills, the minimum knowledge are enough to understand the circuit diagram and I built the circuit board around through hole components (the big ones) then it will be a bit easy for you in terms of circuit assembly and test.

The hardware needed here is mainly used during the circuit assembly so you will use the Vise to hold the Circuit board the the tweezers will assist you placing the electronics components in their placements on the board, the solder iron and the solder core spool are obviously needed for the parts soldering.

Before moving to the circuit design it is always recommended to test the circuit in a breadboard to make sure that everything is okay and you are using the appropriate components in the appropriate connection, I tried the circuit on my breadboard and I used 12V DC power from my “Lab Power Supply” as same as provided from car 12V battery source, remember that in our circuit we are aiming to flash 12V Bulbs not LEDs, the ones used in the schematic will represent the Bulb output connection since I can’t insert Bulb icon so I used the LEDs symbol.

I got promessing results after getting the circuit powered from the 12V power entry and the Bulb started flashing in a defined frequency that you can adjust by adjusting the Capacitor value of C1 (100uF).”
