Hmm.. I recently picked up a dressed 82 wing 1100i. Removed the fairing only to realize (not sure why I didn’t notice upon purchase) that headlight is connected to the upper fairing and the turn signals are connected to the saddlebags.. I want to keep this as a dresser and I plan to purchase a 78 naked in the near future. As much as I’d love to knock this down to a naked I don’t have the experience to put my own turn signals or headlight on.
Best of luck!

horn, turn signals (and brake light) are all on the same (15amp) fuse, so that would be a good place to start.

speedometer is totally mechanical so remove the drive cable and check to see if it's still in one piece ... if it's even still there ... previous owners are a funny lot.
