I just did a 5 sec google search for "homemade heated clothing"
this is basically what I did....
http://www.aumih.info/Tips/heated.html

in short.

get the right wire.

cut to the correct long length.

attach the wire to the OUTSIDE of the jacket liner... you can use iron on stuff if you're lazy. or sew it with more fabric or whatever.

i think what i will do is go to walmart and get a cheap windbraker with a mesh liner wire it into the mesh and wear it under my textile so i have the wind stopped + heat and then if it gets to warm i can open my vents on the textile

MrDude's first reply is right on. I would add just one more thing - how long you plan to be out is important. I find that I can take a mistake in clothing for 30 min easily. But two hours is unforgiving. In other words, a slight error when caught at work and you need to go home is not nearly as serious as going on an overnight trip unprepared.

What I'm getting at is, is it bad for your bike to be used in the harsh cold seasons? What effects would come from it that would cause damage?

My bikes are always trashed from the sand put on the roads in the winter months around here.
