About us

About us

Brightspark Magnetos Ltd was established in 2012 as a business selling its patented 'Easycap' capacitors for magnetos. The Easycap range of ceramic capacitors, solder-mounted on tailor-made circuit boards, was developed to replace condensers buried inside the armatures in magnetos. Seven versions were developed to suit Lucas, BTH and some other instruments, and an eighth Universal version is also produced to enable owners to fettle their own magnetos for which off-the-shelf parts do not exist. For rotating coil magnetos, the Easycap fits onto the rotating contact breaker assembly. Removal and replacement is a five minute job after the initial fitment. The company also sells a selection of high quality parts, especially sliprings and high tension pick-ups, along with bearings, insulators and brushes.

Our Story

Our Story

We‘re passionate about making good quality products and do our best to make life of our clients easier
The company was founded by two long-term classic motorcycle and car owners with a wealth of experience of working on them. Friends from a mis-spent youth at university, they got together in middle age to develop the Easycap. Initially, the company also undertook repairs and servicing, but following the untimely death of one one of the founders and the subsequent retirement of the other, overhauls are no longer undertaken. The business continues in the hands of family members and is a trusted source of decent-quality parts. The extensive website was created to de-mystify the magneto, and to encourage owners to undertake as much maintenance, diagnosis and repair as possible. Extensive online libraries contain a wealth of data on many magnetos, also dynamos and other electrical components on classic motorcycles. Exhaustive technical descriptions explain how to fit Easycaps, and outline many of the tests that owners can perform to ensure the health of their ignition systems. Workshop equipment, from the simple to the more complicated, is also described and illustrated. The company has its headquarters in Yorkshire in the UK, with distributors of capacitors in many other countries. Tens of thousands of Easycap capacitors are in service all over the world.
