Rebuilding Ignition System

A little side project I am doing while waiting for jets to arrive:
I am rebuilding my ignition system (coils, wires, plugs, condensor, etc), since the pair I have on my bike from the 70's is probably funkified and weak. One place that someone on another forum recommended is MikesXS. There you can get new XS650 coils, spark plug wires, a new condenser, and 0 Ohm resistance spark plug caps. All in all I spend around $60 and shipping was super quick. Brown wires from the XS650 coils go to the White/Black Honda wires, and the Orange wires from the coils need to be spliced to a "doubler" connector to connect to the condensor and the points wiring. I have not started the bike up yet, since I am waiting for my slow and main jets to come in first. So I wouldn't follow my example till after I test it out

The coils are not directly bolt on adaptable to the coil "rack" so you need to fab up a lil bracket to hold them in place.
I know PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN, but my camera took a 5 foot nosedive and I am cameraless for some time now...
