Wel bekend bij alle Triumph,Norton Matchless en ander engels spul piloten.

Lucas, the Prince of Darkness


Lucas electrical components' fallibility is a perennial subject of discussion among the nutty, and often erudite enthusiasts of British sports cars and motorcycles.



The Lucas motto: "Get home before dark."


Lucas denies having invented darkness. But they still claim "sudden, unexpected darkness"


Lucas--inventor of the first intermittent wiper.


Lucas--inventor of the self-dimming headlamp.


The three-position Lucas switch--DIM, FLICKER and OFF.


The other three switch settings--SMOKE, SMOLDER and IGNITE.


Lucas dip-switch positions: LOW and BLOW



The original anti-theft devices--Lucas Electric products.


"I've had a Lucas pacemaker for years and have never experienced any prob...


If Lucas made guns, wars would not start either.


Did you hear about the Lucas powered torpedo? It sank.


It's not true that Lucas, in 1947, tried to get Parliament to repeal Ohm's Law. They withdrew their efforts when they met too much resistance.


Did you hear the one about the guy that peeked into a Land Rover and asked the owner "How can you tell one switch from another at night, since they all look the same?" "He replied, it doesn't matter which one you use, nothing happens!"


Back in the '70s Lucas decided to diversify its product line and began manufacturing vacuum cleaners. It was the only product they offered which didn't suck.


Quality Assurance phoned and advised the Lucas engineering guy that they had trouble with his design shorting out. So he made the wires longer.


Why do the English drink warm beer? Lucas made the refrigerators, too.


Alexander Graham Bell invented the Telephone.
Thomas Edison invented the Light Bulb.
Joseph Lucas invented the Short Circuit.


Recommended procedure before taking on a repair of Lucas equipment: check the position of the stars, kill a chicken and walk three times sunwise around your car chanting: "Oh mighty Prince of Darkness protect your unworthy servant."


Lucas systems actually uses AC current; it just has a random frequency.


How to make AIDS disappear? Give it a Lucas parts number.


Recently, Lucas won out over Bosch to supply the electrical for the new Volkswagens. So, now the cars from the Black Forest will come with electrics supplied by the Lord of Darkness -- how appropriate!


Lucas is an acronym for Loose Unsoldered Connections and Splices.


The Prince's last words to his son: "don't go riding after dark"
