Hi folks, spent a couple of hours on the bike this morning doing the headset. Happily everything was in good order so it was just a question of cleaning and greasing.
It took a little bit of persuasion for the stem to come loose, I just put the forks in an engineers vice (with wood) and twisted it free in the end, so no problem really.
I don't know how well you can see this really but I was pleased to see it was clean inside. Could also have a bit of a look and feel at that top tube and I reckon all that rust is just surface.
Another awful picture, but hopefully you can tell that it's all rust free up there
I think I'm going to leave the BB for today and maybe have a go at cleaning up the rims and have a look at the derailleurs, never done a BB (or any of this for that matter) and I'm just not feeling that adventurous to do the headset and BB in the same day
