Hello and welcome to this forum, and congrats with your latest addition to your britbike collection.
Very rarely one comes across an unrestored mint condition Cyclone. :bigt
Please post a picture of your bike(s).

Congratulations. Original condition machines are rather uncommon.

anything to look out for on this model .

All BSA (and probably other) twins have a tendency for the sludge to harden in the sludge trap if they have sat unused for an extended period. which won't do the big end bearings a lot of good.

That one in the illustration might weigh about 4 pounds less than a typical 66-67 Hornet.

Upload pictures to Photobucket or other picture Hosting site. Click on the thumbnail to get a large iamge. You'll see the selection of formats to the right of the large version of the picture. Click on the IMG format, the last one ( a yellow box saying copied pops up) then copy the picture into the BB message box. I usually keep both Photobucket and BritBike Forum open when doing this.
