Oh my gosh i never new you could get so much satisfaction from restoring a classic bike. please click the link to see the progress and let me say it has been harsh to get to this point in the build.
How do i start well the wheels were trashed well thats how they looked but then i stripped all the spokes but never removed then from the hub so i could put them back exactly has they were in the rim but this allowed me to bring the stainless steel spoke back to life and get at the rims with autosol, i then built the wheels back up and washed them. the back cassette was the worse i have ever seen and two days in degreaser did nothing, so i got two chain whips and removed every cog and scrubbed them untill my fingers said no more.
the bars and stem were far to gone so i had them resprayed back to the original and the frame was a wonder to clean, it went from scrap to just about new with each tube getting an evening of t cut to bring it back.
next stage is the electronic chainset from that period which i can smell a row coming on with customs because it has been there for 5 days.
