Looks like my living room. I would recommend regreasing your headset if that is what your crusty dried hubs look like.
Just for you, I removed it
Nothing like 20 year old untouched grease that has gone a bit lumpy. Busy weekend with the bikes what with the A'ha finished (here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=239073&start=75
) and tuning up the Explosif (here: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=210117&start=30
Everything got a thorough de-grease, clean, scrub and rinse. All the remains on that side is the cassette removal (need another chain whip) and the bottom bracket (need the adapator). In the meantime I can make a start on the polishing and reconstruction.
Need the Suntour BB adaptor to get this baby off.
These have come up really nice - stamped with TB on the steerer so the decals aren't lieing
The usual t-cut action will follow once the BB has been serviced. The saddle might be salvagable after all - after a gentle but thorough clean the dirt and dust along with some paint has been removed leaving it black (not brown). The worn patches should return to black after some careful shoe shining action. Fingers crossed!
