Re: Magdyno query...

Hi Ian, I know there was the MDA and the MDB

This is MDA from 1927:


and I think the MDB was running from 1928-30.

Believe one of the differences between the A and the B is the dynamo drive gear, but can check for sure if you want.

In 1930 came the MS-series with a detachable dynamo, still with ringcam. in 1937 came the MO1 with the facecam we all know.

Think they were fitted to almost every British Lucas electrical equipped bike from that period.

Hope it helps, BR Michiel

That is kind of you, :+1: Ian. They are fitted to my awaiting Raleigh projects, so would like to accept your offer. Will send you a PM. BR Michiel
