frame and engine No

Frame should start ZN and engine should start 662B for 1958, possibly typing error on post or more likely on V5
A DC horn will require a battery so as you have electronic ignition do you have a charging system ?
It is possible to buy bicycle type horns that fit onto bars and have a dry cell battery inside , no wiring, just replace battery when flat . I have one on a Cotton, fitted by previous owner

hi again, you were spot on engine no is 662b2472 and scratching the paint off very faintly see z n85576 the the v5 has been cocked up no probs changing the engine numbers but might leave frame number due to dvla, so do think they are matching numbers ? and what was the model of the bike before being turned in to a trials bike

model/identity

It was originally a Falcon 81, yes best to leave the frame details as trying to get DVLA to amend their mistakes is usually more trouble than it is worth
