D1 BSA Bantam
The engine still progresses
slowly. Cylinder is back after the rebore. New piston and rings
arrived. Big end and crankshaft still being repaired.
I've been at work
sandblasting and applying etch primer - not long until we see that
first coat of mist green!
The rear hub doesn't look so
good now we can see it up close. Some straightening to be done here.
The before and after of sandblasting.
The front hub, fork leg caps,
mudguard stay clamps. Blasted and undercoated with etch primer.
First trip to the chrome
plater. Handlebars, fork legs, petrol cap. The wheel rims are being
stripped at the same time.
Primed and waiting.
