    Ello everybody....!! I've got a 1962 sportster and I took it apart in 2005 to get the frame powder coated. Well my father ended up having to get a full heart transplant and we were unable to put it back together. So finally, as of a week ago.... I started to put it back together. I've got maybe 15 hrs into it and I am 75 percent done with it. I need a little help or guidance on how to re-wire my head lamp and tail lamps to the generator...... If anyone can help me or send me in the direction of a wiring diagram it would be much appreciated. Thanks....

    Welcome Jackillac to the HDTalking forum...there is plenty of help in the Self Help section regarding basic electrical lighting.

    I did post hopefully a close enough one to your 1962 Sportster in your schematic request post. Do send pictures and post your progress...Good Luck!
