The resistors are low power & not critical. Use a 16 volt tantalum capacitor. I would reduce the 1k in the transistor base circuit to 100 ohms, otherwise the relay might not turn on. Use a Radio shack relay, 900-2394. The resistance of the coil is 80 ohms so it could draw 150 mA (I=E/R) of current. Most any NPN will work, the 2N2222 is good. The circuit shown for alternating headlights is not correct: Connect power to the swinging arm and the headlights to the NO and NC contacts.
