Onto the wheels finally.
Would like to have had the rims refinished, but budget dictated they just be cleaned for now.
No Anodizing joints anywhere near here either.
I have a few spares so if I get excited down the track I'll get those done and swap.
The front wheel with that screw on spoke retainer was a pain, but got there in the end.
Just need to true them up and fit new bearings.

Almost ready to button her up.
Just waiting on the next lot of zinc plate to be done, which includes the case bolts.
Next job is to true the wheels, new tyres and polish the front fork lowers.
Then it can stand on it's own two feet :happy:

Second installment of zinc plating is back :happy:
Can get on with fitting the engine cases back together now.
Made a small start on polishing the fork lowers as well.
