Default HELP! I need some wiring help for my 1968 Honda CD175!

Okay, here is the story...

I got a great little bike, but the wiring seems to be off. It did not come with blinkers so I took some off of my parts bike (same year/model) and installed them and found that the wiring for them was already in place, great. Too bad they don't work.

The electric start doesn't work, or the horn. The gauge light works, as well as the headlight and tail light.

The problem with this model is that the frame is not a standard tube frame but is instead a clamshell style pressed metal. This means that much of the wiring is inside the clamshell and I cannot seem to trace wiring. I also do not have anything like a wiring diagram....

My question is, what would be easier? Completely custom wire the lights, horn, etc...? OR... figure out a way to replace the wiring harness entirely?

I am at a loss what to do at this point. Even though she runs and drives great, I can't street legal this bike without the proper lighting, signals, horn, etc...

If someone is familiar with the wiring on this animal or knows a place online that has a viewable wiring diagram, help or directions would be greatly appreciated.
