Greetings,

If you want the effect of the work needed to supply energy to a bulb
without the large scale magnitude of the bicycle, just us a gencon that
can be purchased from Arbor Scientific and other science suppliers.
Connecting two together, one can be cranked and the other one will turn,
thus both a generator and a motor.

An even cheaper version is to use a hand generated flashlight. I also
removed the bulb from one of mine, connected two leads and could power
any number of Christmas tree bulbs.
