German engineering and Yorkshire stubborness all the way!
Well, I decided to have a go myself at re-spoking the front wheel.
It's 30 something years since I last did anything like this andwas surprised at how much I remembered.
Pretty good eh? And a shot of the rear wheel alongside the front, that's next on the list to do.
More bits have arrived from Germany, some handlebars,
a front mudguard
and a set of tyres.
They came as a set with rim tapes and inner tubes. So after rebuilding both wheels it was on with the tyres.
I've also located an original cylinder in Germany and that's on the way as well. I now have a surplus cylinder set,
anybody want a cylinder for a model 428 Combinette?!
