You know I'm not sure, but I don't think so though. Its a pull start motor. Not sure who made the generator but as I recall he picked up several of them from a military surplus place.

very pretty motorcycle ... did he make the frames?

looks like it would be perfect for my six block commute through the city ...

guess we call the ignition system on old lawnmowers a "breaker point ignition system" with flywheel magnets and a stator? Kalle has generators/battery on some of his Indians and the generator is sort of easy to see, driven with a pulley/belt ...

reading the Model 7 had a 6 Volt Dry Cell/ Coil & Points ignition system, having fun trying to figure out how they kept the battery charged ...

My dad spoke of using 6 volt dry cells, lantern battery, during his JD ride time
which makes it total loss ignition system.
I think they must last close to a week of riding as the only load using it.
