I've just been out and measured the alignment using a not very scientific method and they are pretty much dead on, i.e. within 1mm between very top and very bottom and straight all the way down.

Is this normal? It looks like the axle when fitted will align the wheel centrally but I suppose to really check I'll need to fit the callipers again.

1983 R80 TIC btw.
loosen all and do the bouncy bouncy alignment routine tightening in stages from the top down.

If it wasn't tight when you took it out but it is now, you do need to ask yourself just what you changed.
