Coil Primary Voltage

I have a Cimatti City Bike, which I am guessing to be about a 77 or so, the coil is junk, there is no getting around it, the case is cracked, and although there is power in the bike when I pedal (I can tell because the headlight lights up) I am not getting any spark, now since I don't know where to get the right one for the bike, nor do I want to pay much money, i want to get a simple used two wire coil, but what I need to know is if the primary voltage is 6 or 12 volts, so I can get the right one

Re: Coil Primary Voltage

Headlight power is usualy powered seperatly from the Spark. The Spark is Powered from a Internal Ignition Coil or a large Primary coil with wires that send the power to an External Coil. The Condenser and Points are in line with the Ignition Coil, almost all Mopeds that are older than the 90's use 6v systems so that is what you probably want.
