I have used VARTA batteries in recent years. There are not many 6 volt batteries still available, but you should be able find a battery which fits within the available space of the Cruiser frame, and has terminals in a sensible position. Lead acid batteries do not last long with a bike which is not in regular use, but they must be in a reasonable condition to cope with the unregulated Wipac electrical system. Original spec was 12 a/h. Others may have used more modern sealed or gel batteries, but I have no experience of them. Sandy

Hi Sandy thanks for that, as when it comes to electrics i am a complete novice with not a clue so your advice is very much appreciated, so thank you again for taking the time to send me a replay.

Cheers Kevin.

Hi Kevin, I have a 1959 Plover, it has a Motobatt MBT6N6 battery fitted, 6v battery that does the job fine,it is a fairly small battery which can be fitted at any angle even upside down if thats what you wanted to do. Available online and costs about 20.00.
