I am going to add turn signals and rear brake to my 1970 z50 k2. Has anyone done this? I have the rear brake pedal, and I want to see how the switch is mounted to the bike. I have seen the brackets on ebay and other sites but I have no idea how to hook it up. If anyone can post pics of your set up I would really apreciate it.

Hey Rick, just did this on a K2 for the second time. Important considerations: if you are running the stock 6volt stator, you will probably be disappointed with the blinking ability at idle. There is not much juice at idle with these old systems. The first K2 I did this on works OK at idle, but not as good as I would like ( Yellow and black bike-just entered this one in classic Z50 of the month.) The second time, what I did was use a K1 wire harness and keyswitch, added a rectifier, and used a sealed battery. Bingo for better blinking, horn, and lights in general, with this set-up. The problem is finding a place for the battery. Since I used a sealed battery, you can place it in any position, so I hid mine under the seat. (Black and red bike.) The other thing you will need to do is add the extra wiring to the harness. This is really not that hard. What you need are two wires that run to the rear blinkers (it is a good idea to bring a ground wire to the blinkers as well, but not absolutely necessary.) The same wires that run to the back lights end up in your headlight bucket, where they split into two female ends: one for the blinker, and one for the handlebar controller. The handlebar control I used is one for a ct70 K3, available at dratv.com for $14 for a repop, or $33 for the real Honda one. You can drill a hole on the right handlebar (look at yellow bike,) and you have a horn button or even a kill switch you can use as well. The other thing you need is the blinker relay, also at dratv for $7. You will need some crimp-on connectors (about 10 female bullet type,two will need to be the double type, a couple male bullets, and a couple of female spade connectors to go to the blinker relay.) good luck, let me know if you need some help.
