 Just thought you might like to see  a bit of progress.   before anybody shouts and says its the wrong colour yes I know but when you have been married to the same woman for almost 60 years and she says why don't you use some of the paint you have in the gararge  you tend to yes dear,then you go and use some of it before you end painting the house,

The color is fine , but , I'm one for using what you already have anyway . Wink

Is that a stock flywheel ?

 the fly wheel is from a Villiers but I had to make a new centre as the taper did not fit this crank.its there just for the weight and to hold the kick start gear as its got no coils in it, it came from a lawn mower the generator is on the other side will take picture tomorrow, its from a Honda melody moped has the points in as well but runs with normal lucas coil and battery.    eric

Eric ,

Very interesting stuff .

How did you fix the crank to hold that generator bolt and still retain enough flow through for proper intake ?

And , considering the extra weight , how smoothly does the motor run ?

Oh , and , what voltage does that generator produce ?
