Much obliged for that thanks, I'll pass this onto him with a reference to this post.

It would be a nice result if it were another F.P.

All the best
Shaun

Hubs have arrived! Look to be all original, apart from the rear track nuts and a missing front Tecalemit oiler- I have some spares on the way... I'll save the cleaning session for the weekend :D

Stripped, cleaned and re-greased. Came up pretty nicely in general, some minor pitting to the barrels... not bad for 60/70yr old hubs eh!

I've managed to source all the bits now, paint will happen over the autumn/winter when the other 2 wheeled project is out the way. For now I'll most likely let the thread rest until more exciting progress is made...

Nothing major other than refining the choice of components a tad... I've got a NOS Campag gran sport seat post going on with a Cyclo saddle support, Accles & Pollock stem and a CLB front brake- currently modin' some magura brake pads to fit. Modern rims = modern pads! Also picked up some earlier 49d cranks, NOS Renold chain & Villiers sprocket.

The still to do jobs are, paint & get the wheels built...

Does the brake actually reach the rim? Some of these old track frames have drilled fork crowns but you can't actually get a brake in there - not unless you can find one with a drop of 25mm.

Yes, all good on that front.
