Finally back in town. I dropped the frame off at the powder coaters tonight. I cant wait to see it finished. I also took the opportunity to clean up and inspect a few parts getting them ready for reinstall.
First cleaned up and repainted the top triple clamp. I also installed the lower bearing on the steering stem.
Next I checked out the front rim. Several spokes were loose and some were corroded solid so I took the wheel apart and cleaned and painted the hub to get it ready to be relaced.
I also cleaned up the swing arm and linkages trying to get them ready to go back on. So far all of the linkage bearings appear to be in good shape. No signs of pitting or rust and had lots of grease in them. Unfortunately tonight will probably be the last time I get a chance to work on it until after Thanksgiving though.
