On a bike that old if the easy stuff like bulbs, sockets or switch doesn't cure the problem, check the grounds and wire connections. Also the flashers do die sometimes but it isn't the first thing I would suspect.

Maybe a bad flasher module. My best guess.

modern flasher installed
In the few instances when I've had to deal with the same, a malfunctioning flasher module (usually the aged OEM original) was to blame. Replacing it with a fresh, factory equivalent module restored proper functioning, every time.

If it IS the flasher relay and you opt to upgrade to a modern unit, you may choose to salvage the original relay's integrated mounting bracket, as I did. The super glue has been quite effective in keeping the relay securely in place.

Mild thread drift:

I'm fond of the controlled-dispensing super glue bottle design pictured in TCF's post. It's been necessary for me to purchase them in 3-packs, though. The size of the bottle gives the illusion that there's significantly more glue therein than its design and attendant functioning will permit.

And so I've had to hurriedly open a new bottle whilst in the middle of a delicate job -- aren't they all, when having to use cyanoacrylate? -- and the squeezings aren't providing any more precise drops of adhesive.

I did something similar to Chad except used a zip tie where Chad used super glue. The part number for the flasher I bought is listed here. The electronic flasher blinks faster and more frequently than the original thermal type flasher. Many would say its a little safer that way.
