Front brake switch on vitage Guzzi, an alterantive

This is my take on solving the front brake switch problem on front drum brake Loops. I purchased a universal car brake switch, built a simple bracket using anodized aluminum scrap and connected the spring to the lever via the spring that came with the switch. Instead of trying to hide it, I choose to just lay it bare, a functional/industrial look. The bracket was bent 90 degree to receive the switch and then bolted on the mirror clamp. I reckon you could also reverse it and attach the bracket to the lever itself, effectively hiding the switch behind the handlebar while you ride; but again, I did not mind the look so I did not even bothered.
Cost? about $20 total.
