Boulder bikes has Francophile Replicas .

at the if you have to ask you cant afford it prices

general theme 2 electric motor brushes contact 1 ring for + , another for -,
so as to have an on/off knob on top of the steerer.. generators had significant drag BITD.

now hub dynamos have so little drag why bother. ?
a grommet under the top if the down tube and a coiled up length of wire from the fork steerer

and you can run co ax wire all the way to the BB*, and then to inside the rear mudguard,
or on to the rear end of the chainstay

My mid 80's touring bike was built to use the then popular BB generator whis dis have drag
it used that wiring route to the headlight, a halogen bulb at that time..
