so here's what happened:
and now i need parts. namely i am looking for old-style jawa ignition components... stator, and HT coil. i will also need a headlight bucket headlight, and tail light assembly. everything else, i have in stock.
i have successfully built thyristors in the past, so i am going to order a bunch of parts right now to build several. if anyone needs a new thyristor, maybe we can work out a trade. otherwise, cash works.
