Hi KC,

With respect, they can't all be front brake switch wires, and at least two in Cliff's picture are clearly striped, standard front brake switch wires are both plain colours.

Cliff: could you not just post the colours of the four wires, top to bottom?

Very nice bike. Although I'd be concerned why those pipes are so blue. If the carbs aren't clapped out the valve clearances might be too tight. But that's a lot of heat going on there.

Mine look just about the same. Might be due to the thin material of the repop pipes. The carb on my A65 is pretty worn though, but raising the needle by a notch makes it run clearly too rich.

Yes, the wires to the horn are solid brown and solid white! I thought we had established that. Oh well, best to just be quiet. N = Brown. W = White. (Solid colors)

As shown in KC's picture, front brake switch wires are White and Brown; horn wires on a '69 are Brown/Blue from battery -ve terminal (via the fuse) and Brown/Black to the handlebar button.

An educated guess says that the four wires (Cliff's "two sets") are White and Brown for a front brake switch and Brown/Blue and Brown/Black for the horn. But it's impossible to be sure; rather than rely on a guess, I've asked Cliff The O.P. twice to just confirm the wire colours ... still waiting ... confused

Hth.
