That seat is for one TALL lady.

yeah uhh huhh ..
the distributor 350 & 500 units are the same lowerend ..
and I submit that funky looking front section is also stock, visualise it Without the 'top tube' from the neck back, which that there tank straddles .. that abrupt up-standing neck at sharp angle is common also to the Cub, and their tanks likewise mount via tabs at the high front and have No tunnel .. (have 2 of those tanks here ..)
Phil I mentioned these tanks when you posted a pic of your frame with the neck sticking up ..
maybe it's me whose head is fuzzy ??
anyhoo, J.P. ..
if you'd be intersted, I have a later 500 front section 4 cheep, if paper is not an issue ..
pm for more ..
but that's the stock frame, with the correct tank there you dont know there wasnt a 'straight' backbone ..

Thanks for the positive feedback guys, it seems we're thinking on the same level. I've only just picked the bike up so there'll be plenty of pondering time before the grinder comes out, but we're thinking the front half of the frame needs to be sorted first to level the frame out and take a little rake out of those forks.
Never ridden a bike with long springers before so I'll have to get used to the front wheel being in a different time zone .
The seat will probably be up for grabs but remember we're in the UK so postage may be a little expensive!!

Prankster's front section is oem, maybe raked, seeing the bend in the down tube ..
you're right Dragon, the frame it is oem, but it has been bent back to cope with the absurd forks (he he).

Well it seemed like a good idea at the time! Obviously it needs some work so suggestions (sensible & otherwise) and photo editing welcome!
Motor is 500 top end on a 350 bottom, wanna keep the forks but I'm thinkin' the front half of the frame & the groovy seat have gotta go.
