1979 urban express lighting help

Hello, my 1979 urban express is running great for me except one thing. The headlight only works on high beam, the blinkers go on but don't blink 90% of the time, and when they do blink, the right side is much stronger then the left. I changed the battery thinking it was just low on juice but it hasn't helped. I checked all the wires and they look fine. Is it just the bulbs that need replacing or is there something more that I'm missing? Thanks for the help.

I'm no expert but my mechanic recently told me that running the Express with a weak battery would blow the headlight. If you ran it before changing the battery, that may be the problem with the head light and the blinkers.

Have you run a voltmeter on the battery? Should be 6 volt at rest and kick up to over 7 when you first start it up at a fast idle.
