What to do about a turn signal

I just got this 1995 vn750 a week ago. The right front turn signal was snapped off and I need another one. I kind of decided to go ahead and stay stock for now, then convert to led lamps later. So I need an oem turn signal. I see them on the cheapcycleparts website but I don't know if the assembly includes the lens and socket and stuff. I don't expect it to include the bulb but I need the whole thing since the broken signal wasn't included. Can someone point me in the right direction?

EPA stuff removed
Rear signals shaved

Splines lubed
Front signals relocated.

Put the word out here and ck fleabay, the fronts are different than the rears, so be sure to look for a front.

Yeah I didn't get the broken part with the bike, but I'm learning to ride myself so that info may come in handy! Hope not though, I would hate to fix it up just to break it again!

just an FYI... after you find a new set of turn signals, use the bi pen trick before mounting to help prevent sagging and snapping.

here is the write up with pics

That's a great repair. When one of my front ones broke, I tried taping two popsicle sticks to the shaft with electrical tape. Lasted about 10 miles before it started to sag off again...

Then I bit the bullet and just got one of these off Ebay:

You can get one from denniskirk.com for $36.99, includes everything. Bulb, if not included, is a common 1157 automotive bulb. I just finished replacing all my lenses with clear, and installing amber bulbs. Looks great.
I have 10 years and 73,000 miles on my '02, never had any problems with the turn signals. They look just like new, and do not sag. I get the feeling some people on here don't treat their bikes very well.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
