No such thing as "street legal".
As for brake lights, you could use a switch so that when you depress the brake, itll turn the lights on.
Turn signals are as easy as a 3-way throw toggle switch and a flasher relay.
Where would i get a flasher relay? I need one, thats technially y i dont use them

In my village you can drive a tractor, lawn mower. an atv, golf cart, as long as it has head light viewable from a 100 feet, tailights ,turn signals and is inpected and you pay a 35.00 fee and get stickered. so yes they are legal in my town and can be driven anywhere but are not allowed to cross highways. so that takes care of the legalities, I can add a trailer kit on the fenders and replace headlamps but the brake switch i dont know, i suppose that i could get and old jeep switch for the turn signals. any advice ?

Could rig up a seat switch into the brake lights ground, so when the brake is off it depresses it turning the circuit off, and when the brake is depressed it elts off and completes the circuit turning them on.
If you can get an ON-OFF-ON switch for the turn signals, you can hunt down a flasher relay and some amber lights. Then put your relay in line with the middle terminal of the switch so its always flashing, and the left terminal to the left side lights and right terminal to the right side.
Get 3 monetary switches, 2 you mount below your steering pivot arm, the big gear shaped like this V with switches it would look like this *V* with a switch on each side. And brake wherever you wanted to mount it really. Easi pisi
Has anyone fitted a brake , running light to a Westwood gazelle as I was looking at the rear arches and they incline to wards the front at about 30 degrees,. I do not want to put them on teh back of the well arch as I have already tipped the tractor over and it would have crushed anything here so they really need to go on top. Any ideas please?
