1957 Raid 250 ex race bike

Hi All

Im new to the forum and new to owning an MV Agusta although I've been on two wheels for a long time.
I picked up a 1957 Raid 250 recently. She has stood for 30-40 years but inland is while there is rust the engine internals looks good from what I've seen so far. (Head and barrel off, HC piston looks good, barrel looks fine)
she was raced so has had the magneto removed, even kickstart removed and I think spark was achieved via a battery. There was also a methanol conversion done with high compression piston etc. not much of the original old girl hasn't been worked on, frame chopped as well but almost suits me as she's great for a classic cafe racer type restore.
I'll likely convert back to petrol and use an additive if the compression is an issue. I've given up on the thought of parts being available unless someone knows different but i have found almost zero info on these online.
I have the original parts booklet which is kind of helpful albeit italian.
Any and all info you can pass along will be much appreciated.

Apologies to those who have seen this message over in the intro section, I was guided to this section for better results.
