Thanks all, I'm not expecting to get it on the road soon though, still missing quite a few parts  :o. I've  set myself a target of getting it ready for the next Crich show, if i manage it before then that will be a bonus.
I'm sorting the wiring out at the moment, trying to get it all in place and working while the frame is relatively bare, I'm not sure about the rectifier it looks a bit battered and the rubber surround to it has perished but hey ho! overcoming these little problems is one of the joys of restoring these old bikes. :)
Next problem to sort is an oil tank leaking from the base of one of the hose connections where it enters the tank, I'm going to try and get it brazed I think, anyone else had similar leak to sort?

These were brazed from the factory. You will have to get all the paint off and make sure the tank is free from rust on the inside.
