Some more time in the garage
Only got a small amount of work done in the garage this weekend. Further to my last post, I stripped the bushes, seal etc from the fork leg and gave everything a through clean. The seal had been leaking and the bike hadn't been used for about 4 years before I bought it, so there was plenty of oily grime on the fork bottom casting. Basically spent a couple of hours with a brush and some paraffin (kerosene) scrubbing it. Once clean, I gave it a couple of coats of silver paint and it looks a lot better.
