All bolted back together, sort of, it was clear that the rear wheel spindle is 10mm too short, and was pulling the arms of the swinging arm together when tightened up. And, consequently, the wheel spacers were wrong too.
So, a swift bit of jiggling and juggling with two hands, a spindle, a wheel, some spacers, a rule and a digital caliper, and measurements were taken and another spindle and some spacers blagged off t'interweb. One bonus is that the new spacers will be aluminium and not steel, so a teeny tiny weight saving there.
Also, the weird issue with the rear wheel rotation seems to have gone away with the new pads (or new bearings?)...
Oh, and the velocity stack that I bought off a pit bike specialist that was designed to fit the 26mm Mikuni carb doesn't. Fit that is.

So, new spindle arrived, and with it and the wheel in place - and a piece of string drafted in for alignment purposes - it became blatantly clear that there would be fettling required to get wheel alignment...
More drastically, it also seems that the caliper plate torque lug thing (what is the proper name for that?) wasn't big enough to slot into the caliper mounting plate with the wheel centrally mounted. You may be able to see that in this pic...

So I was going to have to either extend the stub on the swinging arm, or the slot on the mounting plate. As my TIG is playing up (and my alloy welding is truly abysmal) and my MIG is working (and my mig welding is marginally less abysmal), I decided to extend the caliper plate to suit...
Two pieces of angle iron were cut and welded onto the plate...

Oh, and I decide it was high time I fitted the Mikuni carb, and when I went to take off the original carb I discovered an element of self-disassembly...

Back end all back together with modified caliper hanger and spacers made.
Just need to check it all with the spare sets of wheels that have slicks and wet tyres fitted...

Looking that way mate. While people are postponing events until 'later in the year' I bet things get cancelled until 2021...
