How very sensible. All my old bikes have had mags and none have ever let me down. If mags were good enough for the R/R Merlin...……...
My bikes have all had dynamos but maybe the higher output from alternators makes them more suitable for battery/coil/electronic ignition.

Mine faces forward (1954).
Mine would too if I took it off and rotated it through 180 degrees to the intended orientation and the cable entry point would just about line up with the hole in the splash shield. Although I've not tried it!
1953 AJS 16MS, 1939 BSA 250 and a 1/3 scale Sopwith Triplane but that's another story .....
