Vintage Electronic Ignitions

These kits allow to update classic, manually operated points ignition systems to modern electronic systems. Unlike other electronic ignitions for classic Harleys the Vintage ignitions retain the stock timer base and cover, including the manual advance mechanism. Only points and condenser are replaced by a state-of-the-art module. The original look of the bike stays absolutely untouched and nobody can tell from the outside, however, beneath the cover these kits provide some amazing features:

  • works with 6 volts and 12 volts systems
  • 60% more spark energy
  • no moving parts
  • simpliest installation
  • timing without tools by means of an integrated LED
  • no checks necessary, timing is set “forever”

If installed in 6 volts systems coils with a minimum resistance of 1 Ω are required, 12 volts systems need coils with a minimum resistance of 2 Ω.
