so a while back i got these mag 20's from a scrap heap, no really, with the clockwork frame aswel, the one that is now british racing green. i just didn't get round to rebuilding them, but today and yesteday was the time, they are for the clockwork, not all the time coz the magnesium lowers an a bit dodgy now so they'll be used spareringly, but they'll look good though!! :D

here's some pics, just waiting for the brace to dry!!

I need to do the same to mine, did you try to get the correct colour for the legs or just "gold"?

I was going to ask the very same question, I've got a set with leaky seals and possibly another set on the way so was hoping to make a good pair out of the two.
If you need the special tools how much are you charging for a service :wink:
