It has to have enough current to feed the rotor and power the ignition at the same time. I assume your charging system is stock.
Yeah, between the rotor and iggy you're looking at somewhere around 5amps of draw. Might be OK if your bike fires up right away... but it'll drain down pretty quick.It has to have enough current to feed the rotor and power the ignition at the same time. I assume your charging system is stock.
That's a beautiful piece of kit!NEW REAR WHEEL FOR THE WELSH FLAT TRACKER
After what seems like months I finally picked up my newly built rear wheel from the builder.

The same size 18" alloy rim as before, mounted to the Cognito Moto Disc Conversion Hub.
This time with double butted stainless steel spokes.

New wheel on left, old one on right. I can now run a 33 tooth sprocket instead of the 40T one!
Over to the build thread for more info: THE WELSH FLAT TRACK REVIVAL.
The sights, sound and smell! Had a friend that had a shop that specialized in vintage British cars. It was in an old brick car dealership from the 20's. It didn't take a lot of imagination to transform the location to Coventry or Abingdon.
Looks like you landed a great deal there! Congrats on the purchase.View attachment 214815View attachment 214815
First One That Runs When I Bought It
Fellow on Kijiji had a shortened seat and a pair of chopped fenders for sale that would be ideal for a '78 Special "hot rod" that I am putting together. Back and forth texting turns out that he has this decent '78 that's lost pride of place to a new Bonneville and we put together a package.
PO had installed a PMA and an electronic iggy, fresh seat, new Commando exhaust, tires, drilled rotors, etc. It sat over winter with ethanol gas in it so although it starts, I have to clean the carbs. In addition, I am going to switch it back to the stock ruby red tins also included. Also has air boxes plus an owner's manual and a tool kit. ( never saw one of them before!)
I plan to keep this as a runner to join the 77D. Might consider selling the FJ09, but that's probably going a bit too far.
Must have spent the time but not too sure about the pattern - should the holes not be arranged to cover the full width of the swept area?Someone took a good amount of time drilling out the discs for the brakes.
