Trade Honda XL75 for Hobbit HPI inner rotor/ mini rotor

I have a strong running Honda XL75. I need a nice ignition for my honda hobbit. i'd love to work out a deal for a nice ignition. i want an hpi inner rotor, mini rotor, or maybe you have something cooler/ better? the ignition needs to be complete, working, and ready to install on my bike.

the bike is 4speed manual shift. kickstart. starts up 1st kick like 90% of the time. if it doesnt start first kick, itll start on the 2nd. i believe it was originally street legal, but i have no paperwork or reg stuff for it. i can provide a bill of sale.

let me know what you have and what you think it's worth.

im located in the east bay area, about half hr. east of sf

Thats a neat looking bike.

the problem with your trade is that you're banking on someone with a not so common part wanting to trade it for a not so common bike.

Youve either got to be patient or sell the bike outright.

You can make anything work. Watch this vid.

Pietcard cdi conversion using a motoplat magneto.. you could maybe use a bosch or cev just have to get crafty.

but then ya gotta get it registered!

nonetheless i seriously considered doing this...getting lights on it is super easy . dealing with the dmv (which im currently doing to get my s90 registered) is the killer.

BUT this is a killer deal if you live in the outdoors!

Re: Trade Honda XL75 for Hobbit HPI inner rotor/ mini rotor

thanx for the tips guys.

btw this is definitely an XL 75. The first two VIN letters are "XL" then the following two are "75" The bike was stripped of all its street legal stuffs by a previous owner (for some reason unbeknownst to me). It has a speedo drive, guage cluster mounts, blinker mounts, battery mount, extra wiring for electrics, etc.

id really like to learn more about the pietcard cdi's. ed, u seem to like them a lot. anyone done this conversion? i wouldn't mind being the first... ed, please point me writing about the ignition, or fill me in here..
