I'll bet it never was that shiny before! I'm relieved to see the current owner kept the Factory installed D cases. He was talking of replacing them with a set of earlier ones because he liked an all black engine better. Nice job, good to see it's all in one piece again.
Cheers, John:)

Rear Stand latch

I suspect it latches onto the piece of inner tube on the rear mudguard stay....a time-honoured method of temporary fixing.

Could someone please tell us where it’s documented that the ‘D’ cases were installed by the factory?

This is the picture sent out by Harpers in the early 60's when they wanted to dispose of it.It was found by aclub member under a bunch of bags, leaning against the wall.
