View Full Version : Magneto rebuild
11-26-2007, 03:40 PM
I have a 1920 Bosch BA2 180 degree mag I need to get repaired. It has been rebuilt twice in the last 5 years by an "expert" that I won't mention by name. I am looking for someone else! Please let me know who you use, thanks.

No one out there with a magneto bike? Do you all build them yourselfs?

I've had a couple Bosch magnetos rebuilt for my BMWs. It was expensive and I had the work done in Europe. Check out the links for BMZ and Hans Radstaak over at the Vintage BMW website (http://vintagebmw.org/version6/?q=node/77).
BMZ sells parts for magnetos, so you might be able to find what you need there and do the work yourself.
Another BMW owner I know had his Bosch magneto repaired by Johnny Eagles in Orange County, CA. He was very happy with the work. I don't have an a phone/address for him, unfortunately, but he's a well known name and someone must know it.
