Slow but (almost) sure

The front end of the bike came apart this weekend, in more ways than one.

Installed are some new (non-rusted) headlight ears, new speedometer, new turn signals - all in new and improved ways. And completely unexpected ways - honestly I really didn't know how it was going together, so it wasn't that unexpected.

(Un)fortunately, I managed to bust up the ignition switch (key) and I'm now down to bare wires. Which is actually cool because I wanted to relocate the whole unit but didn't know how to go about it. Now it's completely up in the air - do I want to move it to the back of the bike? - do I want to hotwire it go sans keys? - do I want to make it a pressure sensor in the seat and have the bike come to life when I sit on it?

So it's time to get creative, because wiring is next on the to-do list.
