Your secret back room draft of what a manxman could be or eventually was, since not publicly
circulated and available, is of little use except to bolster your ego for being owner of such a rag.
You TOTALLY ignore the reference ps214 above which includes the 61 manxman (dated 11/60 on the mag) that preceeds your bike and is just as legit a manxman as yours. You will see the reference 23395 IS clearly listed as a supporting part for dual manifolds NOT single carb...whether a 650SS or manxman.
You really should learn when to cut and paste, spell and NOT double post such as you did above.
It is easy to see why NOC forum showed you the door

My friends Manxman with 376-274/275 was in the shed one night and when no one was looking 2 leprechauns came in and swapped the correct original Manxman carb hardware and in it's place they put nasty 650SS carb hardware and left everything else untouched. They probably felt like real devils knowing some day we mortals would be in awe over the hardware discrepancy contradicting AJD's bible.

Nortons/AMC did a candy apple red finish for some of the dirt bikes, hybrids, P11, and later 850 Commando.
Manxmans are a polychromatic blue finish though - in enamel. ?
If you scratch through the paint (!), there is no flake basecoat.
