Have been doing lots of bits & bobs, such as oil blacking the nuts & bolts, this inolves cleaning off all the rust & crud, heating & then dunking in old engine oil. Not sure if if adds much in the way of protection, but I think they look good & it does mean that I can keep the original fittings, which look a lot nicer than a whole load of shiney stainless. Plus they're free!!
The front end, rear swinging arm & wiring are virtually complete:
I cleaned & painted the bevel box & rear brake plate to match the engine:
after etch primer
after final coat.
New tyres are on order so hopefully will be a roller in a week or so!!
