Items that were made new are:
Brake drums
Front mudguards and part of the rear mudguard
Silencer and rear exhaust pipe
Handlebar - clutch and brake controls
Front headlight (Hella rebuilt to look like something like a BTH)
Primary and secondary chain guards
Luggage carrier and tool boxes
(+1000 other things!)
 
The bike is running well after 200km to sort it out.

Excellent, detailed photos of a very handsome bike. Useful for me to see the arrangement of the kickstart, as that on my A31 looks decidedly unoriginal! I posted a question about it on the forum some days ago, but your photos have given me some useful clues.
