Any California residents out there know if turn signals are a legal requirement on ALL bikes or just new ones. My '73 TR7 has no signals. The person I bought it from said they are not required on bikes manufactured before a certain date (kind of like seat belts on old cars or a headlight that isn't hardwired to be on all the time). Anyone know if this is true? I can't find any info on the dmv or chp websites.

Thanks for the response I must have missed that page. I guess I'll have to get myself some signals then...

cichlid,
As far as I know, all T140V's came standard with indicators, so your's should have the wiring in the loom, unless PO has put another loom in it. L/H handlebar switch should have the indicator switch in it. Should already have the holes in the headlight ears, and in the grab rail. Lamp wires are green/red and green/white. Have a look in the headlamp shell, and see if they're there. Short and long indicators are readily available, as is the flasher can.
