    My Daddy had this one in his shop:D. I saw one on eBay. It’s a fun tool to use, first time for me.

    Patina restoration on my badge. I sent my saddle top to Bob U this week.

    Tonight I laced up a Small Flange Fore-Wheel Brake for my ride. The spokes were rusted so I dipped them in CHEM-DIP for a few minutes followed by a light scrub using extra fine steel wool. Then I dipped the spokes in concentrated HCl for a few seconds followed by a good rinse. The ‘high side’ spokes needed to be trimmed about 2mm so the rim sits dead-center in the fork (rim centering). I installed some Good Year All Weather G-3 tires.

    I love the look of painted rims. That's how I built up a 37 motorbike. After many years of looking at it I decided the drum brake deserved to have the hoop in the same finish. For now it has Murray (M.O. stamped) rims. Although my bike was not original paint. This c model appeared as if it was built this way.
