Default What air compressor and how to hook up a pressure switch

I'm not mounting this in my car, I am putting this on my bicycle. I have a 12v 18 amp battery and is currently looking for a good air compressor. I'm on a budget and would like to keep the compressor under $150. Also, I would like a duty cycle of 40% or higher. I'm currently looking at a viking horns 150psi compressor. Also, I have no clue of how to hook up a pressure switch. I'm kinda new to air systems, but not horns.
