My first bike was a 1970 triumph 650 Bonneville. At some point I Threw the battery away and started it and ran it off a "capacitor". That would be: capacitor +( [email protected]) + coil + plugs. Question - is this similar to how a Magneto functions? I own a 65 pan now. I got wiser in my old age. I still like the old Triumph's tho.
