It's like the start of a Treasure Hunt.
Hmmm I've suddenly had recollections of Anneka Rice's bottom.

Its the metal u shaped fastner what secures the leg shield to the middle of the frame I reckon.

Looks to be missing the frame that the number plate should mount to and not just the bit under the back light.

Well I'm pretty sure there should be decals on the side covers and I also can't see the chrome fitting that should attach to the top of the shocks that goes across the top of the frame that the seat rests on (but maybe you can't see it anyway from the angles shown or was it even chrome on this model?).
Is that the correct exhaust?

The all black seat is ok and on second thoughts the exhaust looks the right one. I'm baffled, particularly when you say it's a large part that's missing.
