68 Triumph - Old School Ignition (No Battery)

This is my first project. I have been rebuilding a 68 Triumph Chopper and I have run into a serious problem with the non-stock ignition system that came with the bike. I understand back-in-the-day guys used to modify their bikes by removing the battery and installing some type of electronic ignition system that included a "black-box" as the heart of the system. Two weeks ago the black-box fried (it is toast). There are no markings or manufacturer information on the box. I have been trying many sources to see if I can identify the component and where I can get a replacement. I have attached a picture. I am hoping someone will recognize the components and setup and know what I am dealing with ? Note: The black-box has 5 wires coming from it (2 go to a coil). Help ???
