Default Color coded wiring diagram 1987 XLH1100

I have a 1987 XLH1100 that previous owner put a fatbob tank with dash on it. He basically wrapped all the previous wires going to the old gauges and stuffed them under the tank dash, only connecting the speedometer. I recently purchased a new dash. and a 2:1 speedo with built in tach. I would like to start sorting through the wires, wiring the gauges, lights and etc. on the new dash.
Any suggestions?

Here's a list of wire colors & functions:

Black - Ground
Orange - Speedo Light
Orange - Tach Light
Pink - Tach Signal

Ind - HiBeam - White (also to HdLight)
Ind - Oil ---- Green
Ind - TS ---- Brown (one bulb used for both TS)
Ind - Neutral- Tan

The wires at the actual indicators were all Black - but since the indicators were incandescent bulbs, it didn't matter which went to ground or hot...
