Hi all, I just picked up a 59 ironhead for my next project bike. I was wondering if anyone has a wiring diagram for one of these. If anyone has a simplified one that would be even better. I am running key only no blinkers or any of that other junk. Thanks!:killerjob:

Do you have a Manual and original wiring diagram?? It didn't have blinkers or any of that junk either...... At least I don't think it did...

You could really simplify with adding a magneto and a one wire Cycle Ele Gen ....
