Mafac brake levers are the 3rd generation type with half open back to the lever. Polished these up same as bars and stem with wet & dry paper followed by a good buff with Solvo and new stainless nuts & washers fitted. The original blue half hoods were shot so I've used some gum hoods by Rustines... at around £25 it's a shame they're not half the price. :roll:

Re:

You’ve done a great job with these as they have come up really nice. I like Mafac brakes both for form as well as function. These fit with the rest of the build for sure

The original front wheel looks to be in good condition with all of its original rustless spokes so I decided just a clean and polish would suffice rather than a full rebuild with stainless steel spokes. The 36 hole Prior hub was striped and degreased again keeping the bearings and cone's for each side together to ensure smooth running. A soft toothbrush was perfect for getting into the difficult area around the spokes with Solvo Autosol polish. With a final regrease the mint condition Simplex skewer was fitted.20170928_173747.jpg20170928_173948.jpg20200416_181452.jpg20200416_175122.jpg20200416_175221.jpg20200416_175303.jpg20200416_175344.jpg

Cheers scooter, pleased you like it... not too far away from my favourite part of the restoration.. the build up. Just got to re-grease and finish cleaning and polishing the rear wheel which will hopefully come up as nice as the front...☺
