I used a dremel to work on the near side end of the plastic cassette, down to the bearings but staying will clear of the threads on the B.B. shell. Then flipped it over and hit the axle hard from the off side (chain ring side) with a bloody big hammer.
That smashed it out leaving reminants of the plastic shell behind (the threaded part) that was easily, but carefully plucked away using a chisel and some small snips.
The aluminium cup on the off side did not want to shift, all contact points for a tool had long gone (at the hands of Longun or Legrandfromage or previous owner who can say? :roll: :P ) so I resorted to a hack saw blade and made two cuts about 15mm apart, this 15mm chunk fell out easily and the rest was then easy to squish/compress then sort of roll out.

There’s 9 months to go. That’s a full gestation period. Anything can happen before the longest day.

Good work on the B.B.

Interested to see what you do with it now

Could potentially be half decent!

Could???? It’s gonna be glorious! 8) the Belle of the Ball!

Now the B.B. is out, I need to book her in with Gil for a new set of stickers, then a new paint job (original colour)

Then period correct if not exact catalogue parts.
I’m gonna start with the ‘91 Spectre I pretty much stole on e-bay. It’s got all its original Deore kit,and the wheels are tidy, so she’s going to be the main donor.
