I think it is a quite lovely machine which will provide much terrific riding.

Looks like a proper riding machine. Mine is a 38VH and it's all pleasure.

If you want the experts to list everything that's not original you will probably have to ask them for it!

MPH (not KPH) speedo - unusual on a continental bike? Is that original or something that's been fitted just to fill the hole??
(Not being critical - just quite curious! :) )

Yes I know much parts I know these are not original,
Some is modified for german road like speedometer.
The carburetor is a dellorto racing carburetor.
The other parts I don't know so clear me up.
What's original and what's not fit.?
