Well, the brakes are starting to free of as they were seized solid, rear wheel spins pretty much free but the front is still binding a bit. 8) 8)

cheers dude, hmm I'm also new to the external BB thing! Next plans are for it, good clean, polish up the brake adaptor, try clean up some of the pitting on the wheels and get the gears sorted. You going to do a build thread when you start??

Taking shape, infinitely better without the stickers on it! Surprised how many of these turn up, but must be a goodthing that they're still around and in supply. Really must get one of these as my first foray into full sussers me thinks.
