I'm doing the same thing. I got an enduralast ignition and one of their blank-off plates for the hole where the beancan goes. Since the enduralast requires a 3 ohm coil (which I already had because I was using a points beancan) I can just bring my points can along on longer trips and swap it back in if there's any trouble - just connect one wire, give it a rough static timing and it'll get me home. The enduralast only has two ignition curves to choose from: one for single plug and one for dual plug should I ever choose to do so. I haven't gotten the chance to fire it up yet and get some miles on it, but I really like it in theory.
