Looking good, those rims will take a bit of work.

Here still is something very attractive about these old machines, they are never going to be classics but somehow have just enough in them to give me a warm nostalgic feeling. Keep the pictures coming.

Thanks for that jango very interesting and informative link just shows what can be done with time and effort, hats off and much respect to that guy.
There's been an interesting twist in the project and I'll let you know if it comes to anything.

Well done normski its looking excellent so far. I really like that green colour. The wheels look like a tough gig though - good luck.

Mark.

You've done some seriously good work on the bike already and it's looking very good. Keep up the good work and keep the pics coming.

My Top Tip for finding dropped ball bearings? Take your shoes and socks off and walk around a bit, - you'll soon find them :shock:
