I've had the rear wheel rebuilt like the front with a stainless rim an spokes, but the rear wheel crush spacer was missing, it was cheap enough at £3 so I didnt try an make one for that but by the time it got here ages have gone by an the vat an carrage took it to £7.... I hate momentum stopping moments like that though !
The mudguards have worn real thin by the passage of time so I decided to strenthen them by adding a layer of fibreglass, tommorow I'm going to trim the fiberglass an paint the underneath with underseal to neaten them up & fit some mudflaps as I've had to trim off about 3" of rot before I found some solid steel.
