Are the sizes of condensers relative to anything other than the decade they were made in? The condenser for a Superhawk is much larger than a CB350. Both use 2 coils and 2 points are similar in displacement.
Did the condenser factory get better at making them so they could shrink them for the later bikes?

Bigger condensors have a greater capacitance... I think...

You should be able to pick up replacements at a RadioShack.
