I think you've done a very good job here.

The only thing that I would add is this. Isn't your electric bike considered a "bicycle"? If so, being DOT approved lighting isn't really an issue, right? Also, for all that work, which is awesome, don't get me wrong, you could have just added 3-4 battery powered LED bicycle lights which can really light up the road.

I used to bike commute and I had a small "array" 3 lights which totaled something like 12 LEDs and then 2 small halogen bulbs inside of those. They made by Bell and only costs $12 each.

That would be zero draw on your electric bike's system and probably light up the road more.

Just food for thought.
