Lots of other minor stuff attended to . . . in no particular order:

I thought I'd recover this old Bates reproduction seat, but it's just not the right seat for this frame. Maybe a hardtail, or something with a rear fender that sits higher in relation to the frame. Nah, there's just no way to make this work.





This rear brake arm has to go. I don't know where it belongs (Norton?), but it's not the right one for this bike.





Crappy photo, but this is the right brake arm . . . much better fit, and the correct offset.





Well . . . this explains why the speedo stopped working on that last little ride! New cable was a quick fix.





This kick start pin is definitely past it's sell-by date. A new one takes the slop out nicely.





Not the petcocks I would have chosen, but my buddy has them in stock, and they're cheap. Just right for this project. The old ones had dead seals and leaked horribly.





And it was well past time to replace the old toggle switch with an actual keyed ignition. Just a Lucas pattern repro, but it does the job.
