Thanks.
Yes they turned out really nice.

Got some nice parts for the 35mm Marzocchi fork from Ben @classicandvintagesuspension.co.uk

looking good and also well done on being allowed to have motorcycles inside the house, i'm barely allowed to have brand new parts in any area that is tiled, carpeted or floorboarded (unless i don't tell her of course)
on the other hand i used to know a guy who lived on his own who had a house full of old brit bikes and the place was filthy, smelly and dangerous so maybe not surprising he was on his own , and after he'd ripped off the required amount of mates he was truly on his own ( yes, scabba i'm looking at you , dodgy little bastard, using second hand bearings and pistons to 'rebuild' an engine is not the way to go)

My house, so I do as I want. Also why the bikes are in the hallway is because the garage is filled with a car. Well actually a car in pieces and a complete workshop with tig, mig, gas welder, plasma cutter, sheet metal break, pipe bender, blasting cabinet and the body and the old frame are hanging from the ceiling. One assembled frame on the floor and one frame hanging from the wall. So not so much space left. I'm also doing welding, grinding and sheetmetal work in the garage so it's extremely dirty. Then there is the metal workshop which is too small to fit a bike in. This is where the milling machine, drillpress and the lathe are and lots of tools are.
So the hallway is the perfect place.👍

So anyway, fixed one of the brake calipers. Two parts was missing from kit for the other caliper so it has to wait until I get some new ones.

Not a lot of room left for bikes!
