Henry: yes, I was a bit concerned when I started addding the wires. But think of it this way: Triumph did this method later anyway, (Norton already was because of the rubber engine mounts). Also, it will look a lot less messy when I tape it up. Like I said, Ill do that when Im 100% sure everything is solid.
As for fusing the circuits. Im not too bothered about it really. My 68 electrics arent all the complicated (well, now that Ive stripped them down twice and reassembled!). Especially since Im going EI and Sparx alternator. Those 2 circuits will effectively be off the main harness anyway. So, the main harness is basically just all the lights. Now, if my Ignition and alternator were still on the main harness I probably would go with a 3-way fuse system.
Just another comment: if you go this way have some patience, it took me several goes on some of the wires to get just the right length. So, buy extra wire!!!
