Nick, seems to me the RITA pickup was originally from the early electronic ignition systems fitted to Chrysler cars. Could be those pickups are still made?

Check this link for more info:

Gregg, thanks for the link etc.
The reluctor assembly and rotor are similar in some respects to other makes but unique to Lucas in other ways.
(Strange rotor shape, reluctor impedance etc.) I know it should make little difference but i want to be sure.

I have a car reluctor setup here which i have used for testing but i want to make sure that the ignition front end
is fully compatible with existing rita installations, so i would really like to obtain a working genuine unit.
Unfortunately the chap who lent me his late triumph to test had been retro fitted with a Boyer replacement.

I think I have one with the wires clipped extremely short. Wouldn't want to use it on a bike, but it should be fine for a test rig. I'll look for it a.s.a.p.

Found it. It's not as bad as I thought, about 6" of wire left. You can have it for the cost of shipping. I'll PM you.
