With such a very big, large diameter flywheel as the Scott has, you could pack a heck of a lot of powerful button magnets around the outer flange, and put them on both sides too. With the right shaped coils, placed hidden away between the crankcase cheeks, you ought to be able to power up the Blackpool Illuminations…..
I suppose that you would have to mount a flywheel on a tapered mandrel in the lathe, and then experiment with different sizes and shapes of windings, and also decide just where to put them in relation to the magnets whizzing round.
