Hey, just thought I'd put I couple of pictures of my latest project. It's an 83 mk1 red Burner, I picked up in the local paper for £45. When I picked it up it was all seized, the rear wheel didn't turn it just dragged itself along the ground, the steering had locked up and the brakes didn't move at all. I'm keeping it as a survivor rider.

As the strip down began here are some of the horror pictures! No headset bearings left, no wonder the steering was locked, the bottom bracket had also seen better days, and the pile of rust came out the seat tube.

I replaced the tyres and tubes and put all of the rusty parts in citric acid, it works very well as a rust remover. Ive still a small amount fog work to do, I'm also looking for a survivor v bar pad in yellow should anyone have one sat in their shed please let me know. Cheers Rob
