Ignition lights are straightforward on vehicles with a dynamo and an ignition switch.

On a 6V Lucas alternator system, I'd want to know what you expect the light to warn you of.  The ammeter gives you an indication of charge and discharge.

A main beam warning light or LED, might be useful.

norton commandos use a little electrical gizmo that activates an  ignition light.But they're 12 volt. look up a wiring diagram. Senility has made me forget what it's called.
