I was hoping i didn't have to strip the wheels but the chrome has rusted in places and it would let the rest of the bike down so here goes. First i had the original tyres removed which I may use later as they are in very good condition considering the age.
Front Wheel Before:
Progress this week on the wheels, decided to have a go at rebuilding them, good job I took loads of pictures but still caused me a few problems along the way, especially the front one which was rather frustrating to say the least but all ended well in the end. I have cleaned up the front hub and have started on the rear one.
Front Wheel After:
The front disc has been fitted and locked in place, not forgetting the speedo drive and the cover plate
A lot of the Alloy was pitted but good old scotchbrite and Autosol came to the rescue and I'm sure my elbow will get better eventually.
Rear Hub Before:
Rear hub is next to be assembled. With spacers and bushes in place, rear sprocket is fitted and locked up.
Before i started stripping them i measured the offset, both hubs seemed to be in the middle but best to check.
Rear Wheel Before:
You take them to bits ready to clean up.
Rear Wheel After:
Both tyres now fitted correctly and ready to roll.
