Can you reasonably convert an antique Italian bike from AC to DC?
A 1965 Gilera 106cc. Two coils giving AC current; 1. headlight coil, and 2. ignition+taillight coil. I'd like to convert to DC to run LEDs, and so the LEDs will last longer.
Do I add a rectifier/regulator to the head light coil, and power the taillight from that coil as well? Then ground the tail light lead from the no 2. coil, so the ignition system still "thinks" there's a working tail light?
In essence there are two separate electrical systems, and I want to put all the lighting on one coil, and have the ignition coil just do ignition.
