A perspective on size. Took this photo to highlight how small the lightweight CSL battery is. My hands are smaller than DJT’s.

I never noticed that the CSL got a 36Ah battery and the others a 55Ah battery which is a Group 47. Where did you find that battery?

I believe that the city packs got the 55ah battery. The experts referenced below can confirm.


Per @Keshav I got the battery from @Gerrit. It is quite old NOS. I believe from the early 90’s. I’m seriously debating just leaving it empty and sticking an odyssey under the rear seat. That or leverage the info that @adawil2002 provided and get a second 26r. I have about 5 years to figure that out. :D

Here are the specs from a trustworthy book (published 1973). Also, a pic from a period alpina article (note the battery is black). W&N sells the adapter to fit in the factory tray.
