rebuilding steel bikes from the bike boom era....mostly
You have a gift, my friend. I'm proud to know ya.tj
Thanks Tim Joe, how goes the SPAM fighting?
Dang that looks nice. Well done!! Were the wheels that shiny to begin with or did you have to do something to them?On a totally different note, the part polisher you mentioned a few posts ago isn't for sale on Amazon anymore... got any suggestions for a substitute?
Thanks Matt, I cleaned up alot of parts but can take no credit for the shiny wheels they are brand spanking new. I did however service their hubs (added grease and adjusted hub bolts) as they tend to come from the factory too tight IMHO.I still see the sonic cleaner at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0018IIPFK/ref=nosim?tag=hugsbicblo-20&linkCode=sb1&camp=212353&creative=380549 via hughs bicycle shop. Also a search on Google shows it here http://www.shining-image.com/servlet/the-10/ultrasonic-cleaner-ultrasound-cleaner/Detail but I would suggest getting it from Hugh (PLUG) by clicking here http://astore.amazon.com/hugsbicblo-20/detail/B0018IIPFK
Oh boy....is that ever nice! I am looking forward to the blow by blow details!
Thanks Jim, I am pleased with the result but it didn't come without a few tribulations. Hoping to sit down after work with an adult beverage and write up the 12 inch extended dance cut version of the final stage of the build. ;-)
Well done my brother of another mother!
Thanks Brother, it was alot of fun and I got to use some great tools that you recommended on your blog. The ultra-sonic cleaner -LOVE it, the racheting open end box end metric wrenches, as well as some headset tools. When I actually sit down and write up the finishing chapter on this build I will include some pictures.Ryan
