Having wished I could have kept my previous one - sold to fund other projects :roll: - I couldn't resist this one on ebay :) - 2am bid ;) :lol:

So after a bit of a trek into Wales (almost) I acquired the bike below from a very nice chap called Jeff - cheers :)

Got it stripped down today, but can't get the BB out :roll:

Now to start planning and finding/buying parts :)


Cheers

Thinking of a primarily American parts mix I reckon.

Should be. And the bits on it now which you are getting rid of are of sufficent quality to fund the replacements that will do it justice.

Have faith man :lol:

Had a go at removing the BB today :roll:

These bad boys didn't do the job :shock: ....

Image

But this method did :D ....

Image
Image

Original BB I reckon ;) :shock:

Image

The BB shell with the BB out :lol: ....

Image

And the 'crap' that came out :o ....

Image

Threads have cleaned up nicely though :)

Image

There's a bit of sticky residue to clean off from frame protectors ....

Image
Image

And the decals aren't too bad considering age and use ;)

Image

But otherwise the frame is in very nice condition :D

Image
Image
Image

Hardly a mark on the chain-stay :)

Image


Now need to sell-off the parts to fund-raise for the 'new' parts ;)


Cheers
