Too early for a flux capacitor. That wasn't on the marker 'til '85, or so.

Biggest garage door opener I ever did see. Imagine how tight your car's sun visor would have to be to hold that thing?

Warp drive? Now we're getting somewhere.

Blinker buzzers were little Piezo ceramic jobbers.

Or it could just be a security system component.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Seems tho that being buried under the faring that it would have to be a set it and forget it sort of thing. No access while riding.

A hidden switch, or a key fob.

A receiver of some sort. Single wire may be an antenna not a power wire. Looks like at least one screw terminal on top.

I finally cut the glue and removed the back to see what's inside. It is not a buzzer. There is a light bulb and a weight on a strip of spring steel that swings up and down between two weak magnets. When the weight is up the light comes on. When the weight is down the light goes off. I suppose it could have tripped an alarm if someone shook the bike.

Hondas are my favorite motorcycles.

that sounds like an old bulldog alarm. We had them back in the 60-70. it hooked up to the horn and if the vehicle is messed with the weight swings and honks the horn.

Maybe an after market device to aid in adjusting the points?
