    My 1977 Rotrax with original bill of sale

    Dear All, Here are some pictures of my 1977 Rotrax with original bill of sale. I bought this from the (sadly deceased) owners wife. This bike needs total restoration that it will get in the future. Not to keen on the 1970s components, shall I go earlier or later? Comments please.

The spokes on the bike are stainless steel and less ductile for peined ends hence the dog leg ends, only seen...

    Thanks Ideale, Glad it brightens up this rainy day for you 👍 Yes, finding good 26x1 1/4 rims are about as hard as finding tan wall tyres for them. This bike was a no expense spared restoration.
