Thank you for the reply julian, it is not that model of air filter i seem to have (unless i have been given the wrong set up) i have an inner side panel on the air filter side....... as if the air filter goes between the inner and outer side panel like a sandwich!

i am currently bolting back together a bushman, to send pictures to apply for original registration! Im struggling to figure how the side panels, and inners panels fit together, i have looked at many pictures online to no avail. mine has an inner battery side panel and one for an air filter as if it is within the inner bracket and side panel...... think i might be missing some brackets to piece them together! i will post pics soon, if it helps!! it is also missing the rubber air tube from carb to "airbox" thanks in advance if anyone has a breakdown, my workshop manual does'nt seem to show it. :o :( >:(

Thank you for your reply,, yes, i looked into it, it seems a bit of work involved to get a v5c for the original registration, i have to take pictures of the bike, get them signed by a civil servant of sort, send them, the original registration docs with a fee to the club, then i think they contact DVLA? I may place the engine into the bike just for the photos.
i have decided to get the bike a new set of WIDE trail tyres, and get the engine running, replacing all the old electrics, keep the rest pretty much original, (original patina)!! :P The frame has been properly painted, although the previous owner seems to have cut off the rear mudguard brackets, that are usually located at the rear section under the seat.

 :) hi everyone, new to this forum, i have recently acquired a bantam bushman 175 (1970). Still in two minds wether to restore or leave as is, i have the original document from Bothwell st Glasgow, still yet to apply for full v5c. I came across it from a friend who had it in his garage for over 20 years. It originally was purchased new from Victor Devine Glasgow. Most of the bike is in boxes at the moment, although mostly everything looks original!
