johnnash is an unknown quantity at this point
Default 78 Ironhead switchgear parts

Is it possible to get any sort of switchgear repair kit ?

my 78 ironhead arrived with no horn and the horn button, on the left hand switchgear, is actually missing (nothing in the hole).

Worst case, I repurpose the left hand indicator button through a horn relay or trawl eBay for something secondhand

Why not just get a new handlebar wiring set, left & right. Had to do that on my 77. No harm in replacing 43 year old electrical controls. While yer at it, drill out the handlebars and run the new wire harnesses through the bars, it really cleans up the front end.
