Rear axle topcoat

Topcoat (shiny!)

Brake rods and adjusters

More bits on the way. Some original brake rods with the adjusters on them. So simple, a metal bar with opposing threads on it. rotate the bar and both brake rods screw in or screw out. Who needs hydraulics!

Rear Back Plates

All 90 year-old black paint and scunge (technical term) removed from the rear brake back-plates.

Dry sump oil tank

Even more from the loft: The dry sump oil tank. Oil drains in through the pipes in the top, and is pumped out from the bottom of the filter which extends to the full height of the tank. the pipe at the bottom of the filter sits snugly inside the outlet.
