Paul Zell's second version.
Paul Zell of California, had two versions of electric starters on two of this Velos. The latter is illustrated, with chain drive and a neatly placed alternator on the engine crankshaft...sourced from a Japanese motorcycle wrecker. Paul had coil ignition with no advance until about 300rpm, so there would be no engine kickback which he found had done damage on his other setup.
Cory Padura from Canada came up with the last illustrated...he utilised a heron "v' type drive belt arrangement and a starter from a Honda Accord car from memory with a gear drive arrangement, illustrated. Cory also made provision for an alternator on the crankshaft.The belt is a really good idea, using the offset V rather than the straight teeth which require a belt that won't fit into the narrow Velo primary chaincase.
