Hopefully, your ammeter is still good-I'm not seeing any needle-real Lucas ones are expensive,and just about non-existent at swap meets. I got a couple of repop ones from Steadfast-they don't really look like the Lucas ones,but they have a long,thin needle that really shows whether or not the bike is charging much better than the short,fat needle on the original one.
Yea Im using the entire front end. I think I want to go with black headlight ears. Chrome would be...well too much chrome.
I thought about grafting on a diff front end. But I dont know. I kinda like the old school look of this one. I really like that twin leading shoe brake assembly.
Ill replace the headlight shell at some point. Its not high on my list at this point. Ill probably get a bulb for this one and run it as is till I get the $ for a replacement. Gotta put my $ where its going to gimme the most bang at this point. Tires, oil tank, seat, handlebars.....etc etc
Thanks for the EMGO name drop. I didn't realize they made so many brit parts. Ill have to have a chat with my local dealer (ie my man on the inside) to see what kinda deals he can swing me.
Man I ate waaaay too much today. I really need a nap
