c1929 Model CS1 Norton

Christian in Germany sent these pics of his c1929 Model CS1 Norton. The engine and frame do not originally belong together; the engine was shipped on the 6th of January 1930 to Nystroms in Sweden. We cannot find the frame number in the records. The frame has a few unusual features like an extra lug below the tank in front of the cylinder head (photo above), rear set footrests and the older type of lug for the rear break anchor. All of these could be later additions but perhaps one of the readers has seen these before?
