Ok, quick update:

We have taken the engine apart and all is well, except traces of a past (very) mild seize. We will rebuild it with new pistons and liners for safety. The two (front) heads are in perfect shape and have obvously been flowed very carefully. Distribution seems very good, as are the high lift cams. Bottom-end is perfect.
Gearbox (Norton) was opened and found in as-new condition.

We have stripped the frame, found it true, rake is 26°. We have reinforced gussets and swing arm attachments, fitted new bushes, repositionned rear shocks fixation points. Norton forks are being rebuilt as I write.

Nest step is construction of the engine/gearbox plates in 3/8" dural. Rolling chassis should be complete before Xmas.
