British wiring sells original looking pigtails for the light buckets and
the small 3 wire harness your talking about Herb for the high beam switch, with
bullet connectors soldered on. It also looks original (black cloth covered),
if that's important to you. What you usually do not find in any of these
harnesses are things like the plastic tube covered wire for the license plate
light or the white cloth covered wire from the distributor to the coil. Just
don't throw any of the original wiring away! You may end up using one or two
items from it, or at least as a pattern.
