Been spending a few evenings in the workshop stripping, polishing and cleaning but she's getting there.

Still got a few bits and bobs to finish but it's nearly done now. All original parts other than the tyres and tubes, not a lot of choice for 32-597 nowadays!

I've removed the Dynamo but am hopefully gonna rewire it next week. Parts of note are:

Brooks B66
Bayliss Wiley BB
Williams chainset
Sturmey Archer 4 speed
Dunlop Lightweight rims

Not looking bad considering she's twice my age!

Ah lovely, I need to get into the lugs with a toothbrush and give them a good scrub, full of horrible 50 year old dried oil.

Lovely bike - and equally lovely workshop! I share my own bike cave with a family of frogs and some very interesting looking electrical circuitry...
