    Have been loaned this bike as a long termer but it does need some TLC.

    I made start today by stripping off some of the junk and fitting some of my own saddles and pedals but there is lots to do including re-spoking the rear wheel.

    I will post back with updates as I go.......

    Collected my 4 pin freewheel remover this morning so can now start on the rear wheel rebuild. I already have a set of DT Alpine III spokes waiting so once the freewheel is off and brake drum hub serviced I can get straight on with the wheel resurrection. :hyper:

    OK. Finally got this beast back together!

    Had a few hiccups along the way, including an aborted attempt at rebuilding the back wheel, due to ordering spokes that were too short (could have sworn I carefully measured the old ones and bought the same?)

    Finished off today after lacing the wheel last night. Have spent the day tidying and freshening up all the cabling. Have just taken a link out of the rear chain and tensioned the front chain via adjustable front bottom bracket so no more left to do :wahhey:

    Kids seem to like it.....

    Looking pretty good after a wash to remove over 10yrs of storage dust.

    Looking forward to riding this myself. Could be fun on the Fallowfield Loop methinks.....
