Hello,
 
Hope you can advise me...
 
I have a BSA D1 Bantam that has a Lucas alternator that is not charging.
Is this something that can be serviced or is there a modern replacement?
Failing that could anyone point me in the right direction to sort this problem.
Thanks for your time.

My first thought is rectifier - if it's the original it's probably scrap.

You're now going to tell me it's a modern one? laugh
