yep got the rim changed. it was the last thing i put back on. i didnt forget. honest.
as for the instruction manual. well it was the haynes special (the one with start and finish and not the HOW TO GET FROM START TO FINISH.

thankfully we had loads of spare floor tiles as the ones in the office were used as padding between the frame and bricks.

looks realy clean now. im not nights fri sat sun mon. im taking the front end in to work to strip. i polished off the serial numbers on the forks and cant get a matching tubes un less i take them in. so if any one wants to pop round im on the corner off REFERN AND JAMES RD TYSELY opposite the old boneshakers shop. 1800-0600.

i,ll put some more pics on soon just cuz i figured out how to do it properly.
