Default Slow Flashing Blinkers

Both directions. All the bulbs are working. I haven't looked at anything, yet. '73 standard. Any common things go bad?

Low voltage usually.

Flasher relay maybe.
Bad connections.
Up north , salt corrosion.

I recently had a problem with my left rear and right front t/s lights not working in spite of checking out the bulbs, wires etc. When they did work at time they were 'slow.' I sprayed the contacts of the fairly new blinker switch with a contact cleaner sourced from the local hardware store. All is now fine.

Cool, thanks for the input. I'll be looking into it. I'm just so stoked to have it on the road.

It's regular bulbs. I haven't looked into it too far, yet. Broke the speedo cable in the mean time. I'll be digging deeper soon. Thanks
