Question about 1977 Honda GL 1000 (K2)
The taillight should be on at all times. The brakelight should come on when the front or rear brakes are applied. Start by disconnecting the front brake light switch then the rear to see which switch is broken. Also check the bulbs. I have seen them short out internally. The filament inside the bulb break and contacts the other circuit.

There is an adjustment on the rear break pedal that turns the break light on when the pedal is pushed, check if this solves the light on all the time. It also sounds like a hot lead to the break light is grounding out. Check the wire (look at the color of it) from the break light to the front and rear controls for any bare wire then replace as necessary.
