    Magneto coil keeps burning out

    Yes, the bearings seemed good and crank seems solid. It's a fairly new engine with less than a 300 miles on it.

    Greetings from Raleigh, NC!

    The first pic is how it started from the Huffy Nel Lusso, the second is one the Harley logos I added. The other posts shows more the finished bike. The last picture on the other post shows the black seat I finally added.

    OK, here's the "Huffy Davidson". I went a little crazy on this build. It was extremely heavy by the time all was said and done. It made it tough to get going, but actually had a really decent top end speed. It's not my everyday driver, but it makes good "grocery getter" for quick trips to...

    Greetings from Raleigh, NC!

    OK, here's a few of the Kent Cruiser I picked up from Wally World. I think it turned out alright. I still would like to paint that tank burgundy to match the fenders and rims. I think that would really set it off. I'll try to find some of my other bike in another reply. This says I can only...

    Wont stop burning out magneto coils!

    I'm having a similar problem with magnetos burning up. It seems to burn up the little wire sticking out of the side of the winding that's soldered to the base metal. I did ride it once and got caught in a heavy rain. The bike was running fine during the rain, so I motored on a couple more...

    Magneto coil keeps burning out

    I have searched this forum and haven't found an answer for this one. I have a problem with my magneto. It keeps burning out. The wires coming out the side of the plastic and are soldered to the base burn up. I've tried to resolder them and they may work for a couple of miles and then burn up...
