Thanks Mario. Needs some work, but is all there and the previous owner put it away correctly, two years ago. Should be an easy project. Owned since 1983 by the PO.

Like so, these may not be the right dia. but same look.

I had aftermarket brake lines and did not have to change them, don't know about stock lines.
Also I had to turn them( the bars) around from what I intended so stock master cyl would slide down the bar far enough.
That brought the bars closer, good, but they then hit tank, bad, so I built up the fork stops on lower yoke with a bit of aluminum, and some JB weld.
Easier to undo than if I had welded.

Makes a big difference.
