Scrambled mind

So I've had the idea of scrambler pipes on my 1979 cb650. Obviously this bike never came close to something like that and im pretty sure that's not an aftermarket your going to find on ebay. I'm thinking custom here. Has anybody ever seen or heard of a cb650 with a scrambler set up?

Input is appreciated

So I'm reconfiguring my head light and gauges. In doing so I have removed the stock ignition switch and plan on putting a new, smaller one recessed into the headlight. So here is my question; if I were to buy a new ignition switch how would I tie it back into the bike as far as re-wiring goes? Does ...
