This is the latest electronic magneto from BT-H Components. The OBM editorial Triumph has had a BT-H early version on for years and it has been superb but it doesn’t look like the original magneto. But that has changed...

After much testing and design, Peter Nugent – the new man at BT-H – has produced this superb replica of the original competition magneto used on such bikes as Triumph Trophies. Peter is keen to stress the help Tony Harris – the former owner of BT-H – has been in this project. It addresses all the design considerations of the original and works superbly too. Peter says the BT-H Components competition magneto will be as waterproof as the original Wader version. The product is so new, the one we photographed was the very first one and Peter was assembling it as we came in the door. It is to be launched at Stafford show at the end of April so, pop along to his stand in the main hall and see all the latest range.

A price hasn’t been formalised yet,  nd you can get more information from BT-H Components: 01234 880605, or email
