That starter is heavy. When I started this project, I looked around hoping someone made a light-in-weight starter. Never found such an animal. Don't know what it weighs; I should have weighed it when I had it off to strip the black paint.

An air tank may weigh as much as the motor portion of the starter. I'll discuss the capacitor idea with an electronics engineer friend of mine. He is a genius with that sort of stuff. He was on the guidance design team for the smart bombs in the first Iraq war. Then his company invented the bar code readers. He retired when he sold out of that company. He ought to know whether a capacitor would be feasible.

Air tank assisted Cap...the tank is no more in Ti or molded carbon fibre 12 oz and cap is less than a pound.
How to spin the gear is the crux.

Looked at a typical stock starter on Amazon; they showed the weight at 13 lbs.
