Oh some goodies in there , I know you want to move it forward but have a good look through everything there , I think I see a plunger oil tank ,no good for yours but very saleable . You've ,I think got a gem of a front wheel ,the 8" single sided and the brake plate looks to have very usable green linings ,far better than modern ones IMHO . No point buying stuff which you already have ,bits are expensive enough , best of luck , Bob. *beer*

The frame is the plunger type so guessing I'll use the tank...
Everything is there I think but going to have a good look through and wipe down tonight...will add some more pics.
The forks look a bit bare...if I get the fork shrouds with the ears will they fit with my existing headlight?

A weekends work...lol
Will add pics as I go along :)
What other bits do I need with the cowpat nacelle?

Fork shrouds without “ears” to go with the cowpat (I have some but not much use in nz)

Headlamp shell with 2 holes in it for speedo cable/rubber pipe to pass through it (an original might be hard to find).

Rubber pipe for speedo cable/shell.

Rubber ring surround, for speedo to fit into the cowpat.

Rubber strip for front edge of cowpat.

Ammeter and switch to suit cowpat, the switch also needs a metal ring to hold it in place.
