Dynamo sleeve

The dynamo was in a post a few weeks ago, it's too small so a hollow cylinder has been cast which will be machined down to make a sleeve to hold the dynamo in place. It's out of sight thankfully!

Crank handle cone casting

There are three sizes of starter handle cone. I have two starter handles, but sod's law intervened so this is a new cone casting ready for machining. just behind it is a new radiator trunnion casting with the second one on the other side of the cross-shaft. Apologies for the blurry photo!

Rear hub

First rear hub complete.
