    My 12V DC led's have never flashed running off AC, they're on for 12 - 18 hour's a day for the last 3 year's

    They have to flash as it is Alternating current and a normal LED is DIrect current.
    The frequency will be high enough that they appear to be on all the time as explained in that link.
    Your power supply is entirely different to what will be on a 6 volt bike charging system.
    It won’t be as simple as you make it out to be.

    Thanks, I've read that. Have bought the LED light and will see how it goes when it arrives.
