Would it be possible to get an electric starter added to my 78 T140-E?

At 64 It would be a nice option for my spine!

Please advise if possible.

regards Tally Hoe

That's a really tough question and probably can't be answered here, but Grandpaul may have an answer for you later.

Yes, but you'll have to change a lot of parts. There was most of one on ebay very recently...

Thanks this is very interesting would be great to be able to pre review all of the installation instructions and wiring instructions as well. Just added this to my « if I could only win the lottery wish list. Regards

I was surfing the site and ran across this post. Did you ever do the conversion? My '79 Bonnie is so much more user friendly once I had an electric starter system installed. I also just purchased a 2008 T100. Now I have the best of both worlds.
