Well done! I'm pleased we didn't see you on the news.

Looking closer at the motor - oil box without a detachable cover - it's of the type used c 1920. These mostly had a 20/ prefix to the engine number. The EXU is a common suffix, and denotes three features of the motor. From 1921 the engine number would have a letter prefix like KT/N. So I'd say the motor is 1920-ish.

Good coffee?

Don't know where chaterlea25 is located (I'm in the UK), but I have a bare Chater Lea hub in excellent condition and a Moss screw on hand change lever (may even still have the entire box). No idea what model CL the hub is for, or whether it's front or rear, but it's definitely marked up as CL. Both of no particular use to me. If interested, pm me.
