I gave up on cutting through the crank, as it was taking ages, and I was worried about catching the wotsit. er.. spindle?

So, time for some chemistry fun! I'm hoping the caustic soda will eat around the square. A bit of time will tell..

I only drilled in a little bit before it snagged and rotated the thread, so it unscrewed. Result! :D
Oh that’s the best feeling 😊
I bought a 96 Rover 216 tomcat with a failed cambelt 20 years ago, felt well smug as they’re non interference engines only for the bottom pulley bolt to sheer off in the crank. I had the same thing happen. Result indeed

crank's off!



... and the bb came off really easily after all that hassle. whoever last serviced the bike was really liberal with the grease. :)

the frame's now ready to be powder coated, but I'm skint, so it'll have to wait until August. :(

i dug about in my parts box, and it looks like i can assemble the bike using a mix of exage 400 and 500, which is at least roughly the right level of spec, i think. it'll do to get it running.
