From rats nest to....

When I 1st started repairing and building bikes 25 plus years ago electrical was one thing I couldnt stand. I couldnt stand it mainly because I didnt understand it. Today I feel different about electrical altogether and its one of the things I look forward to when I am working on a scoot.
 Electrical is one of those things you find half assed or way over thought on bike builds. This bike when it came in had more wires then the space shuttle. Half of the wiring was melted due to shorts. I am surprised that the coil and ignition didnt fry it was so bad. I take a moment to lay the job out on paper before I jump into it. It saves me a lot of heartache in the long run.
On this 1971 Ironhead it is just getting the basics. Horn, High/low, kill switch, electric start button, 3 way key, regulator and tail light brake light. The bike also needs to retain the stock hand controls and switches to cut down on the cost.
Simple fittings and wires are used for a low budget clean harness as this bike has a max on the amount that can be spent on it. The hand made wiring harness is looking pretty clean so far. Next will be wiring up the switches, buttons and lights tomorrow.

Deepest Sympathy

I wish all the people in Japan and other areas that have been hit by the earthquake and tsunami my deepest sympathy.
Also wishing the best for my buddy Hiro that I met up with last week at the big 3 swapmeet. You in my thought Brosef.

Budget Builder

I have had this matching numbers 1971 Ironhead drifting around the shop and finally found the time to get her cleaned up. I yanked the tins off and found a huge rats nest of wiring under the tank and light bucket. It was so bad half the wires were melted from shorting out.
I also noticed the stock swinger wasnt up to par so I tossed this Hammer in Hand bolt on tail section for shits and giggles. Im making a new wiring harness as this one is toast and we will see if the bolt on stays or goes.
