I am installing battery operated 3-LED bicycle safety lights from Pricepoint as turn signals. Available in clear lens with yellow LEDs. $10/pair. Something like 100+ hour run time. Will stay constantly lit, or flash, or scroll. No guarantees as to DOT legality though. Eliminate wiring hassles. May not pass inspection, but not an issue where I am from. Just something to demonstrate apparent compliance at night (which is when I ride on-road the most, due to schedule)
I think the part from the street bike that would be most useful would be the brake light actuators.
You can fab a license plate mount from sheet metal. Looks like a "T", with narrow part bolted to underside of fender using tail light bolts, and "top" of T bent down 45 degrees to mount license plate.
Just my .02
