As I wrote in the previous post, earlier this year I stress-tested coils for a Dixie magneto and a spare as a favor for Kevin Naser who was rebuilding a 1916 Indian to ride in the next Cannonball cross-country rally. As well as testing his coils I also gave him two pairs of "my" condensers to use in these magnetos.

The 2016 Cannonball is now finished and Kevin was one of only 16 riders out of a starting field of 92 who achieved a perfect score in the 3306-mile, 16-day rally. He covered every mile, and did so within the allotted time every day. As this shows, a magneto -- even one 100 years old -- that is rebuilt using the proper components will take a licking and keep on ticking.
