    Wiring For 70's Hondas?

    Looking to replace parts of the wiring on my '75 400f like signal wires... Does anyone know a source for wiring that will match the factory wire colors? The only wire I can find is red/black/white/green. Need orange, cyan, etc...

    The best way may be to get another old Honda harness and strip the good wires out of it. That way you will have the factory ends and colors. Honda is very consistent in how they color code all of their wiring. All neutral switch wires are light green with red tracer, grounds are green, left turn signals are orange, etc..

    I know you can get a turn signal kit for cheap that includes everything needed for turnsignals like wiring, switch, relay and turn signals for under 40 bucks. It was I plan on getting for my street project when I get to that point in the project.

    Kennessex - I was concerned I wouldn't be able to find enough long lengths of old harness in good condition but I was told that old 60's/70's Japanese cars for the most part used much of the same wiring colors so off to the junkyard I go to at least check it out.

    Pinche - Thanks for the link, I have min-bullet signals already and want to use the factory wiring colors as much as possible.

    Thanks

    Check these guys out for stock Honda wiring in 13 foot lengths....

    http://www.z1enterprises.com/catalog.aspx?pid=HPEL1

    They also have the old type bullet connectors as well so you can get some as well. Was out working on my buddies CB350 yesterday and the PO made such a fucking mess of the wiring could barely tell where to begin. A big +1 on keeping the wiring STOCK color!
    If I were you I\'d hate myself too.
