Plenty for you to go at, just looking at your photos on the trailer, looks like the rear mudguard is from a rigid frame. 

The plunger type is valanced all the way round, not sure how this will work with plungers moving.

Ok, Thanks to everyone for all the info.  Yes, it looks like the rear mudguard may be from a Rigid frame, but I'll give it a go anyway....

You might find someone keen to swap the mudguard. Rigid ones are thin on the ground.

Good evening once again to all.

Further to this restoration. I have now repaired the stop plate stand, I have all the bits,  and have sent off for front and rear mudguards. You were right Sunny, the rear one is from a Rigid, so I am replacing both.

I also received the new seat today and can make up 2 lugs and weld them to the frame in readiness for painting.

If you look at previous pictures, you will notice that, for some unknown reason, a previous owner has broken off the top of the lugs that the seat bolts on to.

I just wondered if some kind soul with an unmolested frame would measure the centers from the bottom hole of the lugs, where the tank bolts on to, to the top hole where the seat bolts on. Then I'll be able to get the angle of the seat right.

Thanks again everyone and take care..  Phil

Rhi010. Thank you so much. A real help. Will weld the lugs on, then I'm  just about ready to do some painting. Cheers
