Maybe they are not available at the moment or it's simply personal choice, either way it's still a fine machine.

Wondered who would pick up on that.
noddy crank I got from you, petrol tank from you is in primer. As for Dynamo, is what I could get, same with filter cap although I can test oil pressure with the Earlier one. Also only have an 80mph black face speedo in a later headlight. It's what I could get or I had. I'm sure I will get more Nit picking but I don't really care mate. Looking forward to riding it in a month or so ish.

I wondered if that was the case. Some bits are a little scarce, it certainly doesn't detract from the look of the bike and the dynamo is very nicely done, and to be honest I find it easier to carry out checks with that type of end cap. I'm sure it'll go as good as it looks.
