    I like the look of that!

    It even has BSA Parabike style pedals.

    I cannot say I have seen one like it before though? All I think I might have seen is some kind of line drawing or the like?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Paul, I am 100% certain it is British.

    There is a similar US version, but it is hand cranked:

    As I said above I would be very interested in buying this pedal generator to add to my steam powered generator and my 80wat charging set. I have added a picture of the stowage details for a radio jeep and you will see the pedal generator on the nearside wing. John.

    Hi Paul,
    can you confirm the voltage from the generator, is it 6 volts? The Charging set pedal driven No,2 as shown above is 12v.
    thanks Pete.

    hello pete.

    the charging set is in storage at this moment ...

    but i can confirm it lit a 12 volt car bulb up very well.

    funny thing is it nearly went to the local refuse tip .makes me wonder how much gear like this was thrown away over the years .

    ive had an email fom a fellow collector regarding it and he says its as rare as hens teeth . ive seen similar pedal chargers but not one like this .

    regards paul.......
