Thanks Rich - I have the short sleeve arrangement you mention on my A50 but found it hard to mount a good looking speedo bracket with the drop yoke and fork top cover in the way. If I can crack that then I guess that would be a simpler solution.
With the short headlight sleeves installed, you lose the top cover over the yoke. For gauge mounting, BSA used the separate gauge mounts similar to the later OIF arrangement (similar but not identical) or the later dry frame style bracket mounted off the front handlebar clamp bolts. This requires longer bolts and small spacers.
Both ways look decent.
Life is too short to drink cheap, bad beer.

Thanks all - looking through the boxes of bits still to be explored I found the following
This looks like it would fit on the handlebar mounts - either below with suitably modified brackets or sitting on top of the standard brackets with longer front bolts - is that what you were suggesting Rich?
Of course this bike was built as a plain Star so I'll need to find an electronic tacho to fill the left hole!
