first job is to restore some odyssey sharkbite pedals...
not in the best state when i recieved them... loads of bearings missing and quite a lot of pitting on the axles.. wish i had waited another day or so before buying them as a nicer set popped up on here the day i recieved them! but... restoring them to their former glory is all part of the fun and very satisfying..!
Managed to get one done yesterday.. cleaned up the axle and body as well as i could... popped in some brand spanking new stainless ball bearings and grease.. some NOS Red cages and its almost as good as new..!
will try and get the other pedal and front brake cleaned up and polished this weekend
Old on the left... restored on the right...
EDIT: I'd forgotten about the brake levers...! theyre the find that really started me off as i didnt ever think id find another pair of these.. i can still remember buying them for £6 from my local bike shop.. they transformed my riding as i'd previously been riding with some old plastic and massively flexy levers from the raleigh MAX that came before this bike..
theyre polished and gleaming now..
