New three-phase alternator stators, claimed to produce more power at low revs than the single-phase versions, have just been announced by Paul Goff. Plus finding vintage tyres and NSU spares...
Available in 125 and 175w versions, both are interchangeable with the original Lucas single or three-phase stators, and compatible with the original Lucas rotors.
These were fitted to the last 750cc Triumph Bonnevilles, but can be fitted to any bike post-1959 using the 74mm rotor.
Both stators cost £94.95 and are supplied with the A Reg Three regulator/rectifier for £134.90, plus £10.50 p&p.

• Originally established to maintain supplies of Dunlop tyres for vintage and veteran cars and motorcycles, Vintage Tyres has been in business since 1962. During the intervening years it has never ceased adding to its product range by understanding the needs of its customers and approaching the right manufacturers to come up with the goods.
In recent times completely new tyres have been developed which, using the latest in technology and materials, are bringing much greater levels of performance while retaining the look and feel of the appropriate period.
Serving a worldwide market, Vintage Tyres is based on the National Motor Museum site at Beaulieu, Hampshire, and stocks almost 20,000 tyres for two, three and four-wheeled vehicles.
With its Ensign brand, it has become the only company that can supply a complete range of beaded-edge tyres.
Its products also now include the conventional wired-on Ensign Universal range employing the Universal pattern that was common in the 1930s, 40s and 50s in popular sizes. This means that, at last, owners of bikes from that period can fit tyres with the right tread pattern that are already available in 325-19, 350-19, 300-20 and 300-21, with more to come.
