Thanks or the advice and the generous offer of loaner tools, Mark. I'll start with a penetrant this weekend. As I may have mentioned I am without a garage so I keep the bike in a storage space a few miles away and hope for good weather or kind club members with garages when I need to work. I am hoping to knock out the brake work this weekend and then onto the steering.
