The problem is even when new, the old stuff did not work nearly as well as any of the new stuff today. Kind of like a fool saying the drum brakes and carburetor on his 65 Pontiac was better than the new fancy dandy computer cars today.


Agreed, dependable/repairable/cheap is not the same as best
performance. People have personal preferences based on
various not-shared criteria.

That said, after the Chinese run their high altitude EMP
device, my no-electronics cars will run and yours won't.

I only did about 35 Km yesterday, but, in my defence, the weather was off-putting. I was astride my 1972 Torpado Strada with its still mostly Nuovo Record gruppo.


If I wanted to ride yesterday, I would have needed a canoe. It's
looking worse today and now we're getting sleet.


Are you out in Rocky Bottom (Pierrefonds)?

You have a crank on the front of that model A Andrew?
Unless you mean your bike and then I'm all in with that idea.


12V electrical system without semiconductors, EPROMS or ICs.

p.s. Model T had a crank (at first anyway through 1919), model A are
electric start. I own neither.

No electronics on my bikes either.

No, I don't have electronics on my bike except my garmin and after the
bomb, I figure I won't need that.
But it's been a while since I've seen a car without an electronic ignition.

A matchbook and some meatware are sufficient for setting
mechanical breaker points.

I know. I used to carry points, rotor and condenser in my glove box. But
that was with a '69 Camaro with a 283. Long time ago.

I love my 283. I think Mr Slocumb would agree it's
everything an Ariel Four is not. One might say a small block
283 is the Sturmey Archer AW of the auto world.
