I have put in three solid nights of cleaning with hot water and simple green. Great product that Simple Green. Things are starting to get exciting. I'm hoping the parts I have ordered will start to arrive soon. I have ordered a set of Michelin Cross AC10 tires. They arrived at Burlington Cycle yesterday. I will have the new tires put on when the fork seals arrive as I will have those rebuilt by the shop too since I don't have a fork tool... However I'm starting to think I can make one out of a piece of copper or steal pipe.
I have cleaned a lot of the little things. Cleaned the threads and polished off the rust.
