Most motorcycle batterise probably won't have enough Cold Cranking Amps, 40 years ago batteries were built differently, they were put together with melted tar, there were small shops that would drain out the acid, melt out the tar, take out the plate assembley, wash it off , clean out the sludge in the bottom and if the plates and separators were still good put it back together and melt tar back in. and sell you a rebuilt battery.. they usually would last 3 years max. recycle the old ones and invest in a new 6 V
