    My ‘68 CB350 seems to have come from the factory without a dedicated ground wire from the handlebars to the triple tree. It uses the brake and clutch cables for the ground path. I discovered this when I had those cables off the bike and the horn, starter, and turn signals did not work! Once I reinstalled the cables all was good. Not the best design really, and it seems Honda added a dedicated ground wire in later models.
