 And their rectifiers and their voltage regulators and their generator
diodes and their headlight/taillight/signal bulb sockets....
 I can't speak to anything but Lucas automotive & motorcycle components.
But I've owned a '69 Triumph Tiger, a mostly-'65 Bonnie, a '62 Norton
Atlas (with a 750 Commando engine stuck in), and a '72 MGB. The MG was
only 4 years old, and the Atlas had just been restored when I got it,
with all new Lucas parts. So I can say with a fair amount of conviction
and authority:
 Lucas Ltd. sucks.
