According to Clymer turn switch has 5 positions with "left 1", "left 2" and two right ones.

Just like a car, LT - LC - Off - RC - RT, two positions are spring loaded for lane change and two are locked in for turning, If the auto cancel works it will return to center off after the turn.

True enough, no auto cancel on his '75, I read his signature and added the autocancel statement. But then Newbiker probably figured that out.

The problem you describe is probably caused by some bare wires getting together. The most likely location will be in the headlight bucket but I would begin checking from the turnsignal switch forward.

Left front and rear turn signals connected together, so if left front is blinking for whatever reason left rear one should blink also. When I use left turn both left signals work fine.

True, but there are no electronics to fail in this model. Everything is hard wire and switches. So I will still maintain that there has to be a short in the wiring in the front of the bike. One other place to look is behind the dash. The indicator bulbs are fed from the front turn signals.

to me it sounds like a ground problem . if one off the lamps is not grounded properly , it can make the others ligth because it draw current thru them. (you often see that on car trailers )
