Slowly bring this thing together. Have decided to completely strip down the front wheel and have a crack at rebuilding it. Should be interesting....

Brought myself a cheap wheel truing stand on eBay, spent some quality time with you tube learning how to lace a wheel. Some trial and error but about an hour later and wheel laced!

Then you go to mount the wheel on the stand and realise that the bearings are too small for the stand. Doh.

Some creative thinking to get the front wheel true. Rear wheel fits on the stand.

Wheels on, starting to look like a bike. Now to paint and polish the engine

Spent some quality time with the polishing wheel. Clutch cover was really bad and had been painted. Ended up alright with a lot of sanding first. Managed to pick up a NOS points cover on eBay.

Painted the cases, cylinders and head then re assembled the engine. Very happy with how it came up. Still need to polish the sprocket cover and paint the oil pump cover.

Physiological, a big step was made today. Time to crank this build up and get it finished for the distinguished gentleman's ride in September
