'78 Batavus w/ M56 no spark

Hi all, just joined the site after picking up a '78 Batavus (Regency?) with a Laura M56 engine.

Anyway, I've got this Bat' in a lot better shape than when I got it, but I've still got a couple problems, the main one being that I have no spark. Points seem to be in good shape, and gapped/timed correctly, and all wiring checks out. I've checked resistance across the ignition coil primary, and I get a reading of 0 ohms. Is this coil toast? I've heard there should be pretty low resistance, on the order of a couple ohms, but it reads as a dead short.
