Hello Everyone,
The big fellow is nearly here. Hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year.
Does anyone know where I can buy an electric starter kit? I have E-mailed The Motorcycle Restoration Company 2 weeks ago , but haven't had a reply as yet. Does anyone else have them?
Thank you for your time.

The most popular one is made by Francois grosset, starting price at 1580 euros. address is Francois Grosset, le pont ricoul, 35720 St pierre de plesguen, france. email pontricoul@aol.com Francois is most likely to have the product in stock .
Both my son and roger have used them for many years, with great success.

Bob dun in lancashire allso produces his own version as does conway motors. but what the availability of these is I dont Know.
all the best,

P.s. Francois speaks good english.

I trust you ask not for the 500 comet electric starter that mythical beast has been about to arrive for the last five years...
