converting race bike back to street


I would ask the tech gurus here...if I just want a headlight, and rear turn signals and taillight/brake light on a bike that has had the wiring looms and such removed what is the best path to take?

I could try to find used wiring stuff, or if there is another safe way to proceed...(wire the lights to the kill switch + some fuses?) that might be better?


To those who would say "don't do this, just buy a streetable bike" my reply is "too late", I bought a racing bike but haven't been to the track as much as I thought and I'd like to get some use out of it on the street as well + to have a backup for when the hawk needs some love.

RCVTR is an unknown quantity at this point
Buying a used wiring harness is the way to go, unless you have a lot of free time and don't have $100 that will let you spend that free time more wisely.
