Nowt wrong with magdynos. Much better made than later Lucas stuff.

Is that a 3 brush dynamo? I had one on my Sunbeam and it was - interesting - to get working as Uncle Joe intended.

May ride this old thing this year. I've had her for nearly 30 years and recently splashed out on a pair of new handlebar grips which, I suppose is a form of restoration.

Nice. I have never ridden a hard tail, (other than my V7 ii which sometimes does a good impression I imagine! ) does it not shake your fillings on our potholed ruins that pass for the public highway these days?

The one I had parted company somewhere along the magneto shaft, so the first part turned but the points didn't. In those days I was able to get an exchange unit. Though it had a different cam arrangement. Face instead of ring.
