I've got my bits back from the shot blasters and got a few coats on zinc primer on. The forks are spot on fortunately and the dram is much the way I expected to be, however I'm now in the market for a new swing arm as you can plainly see in the pics

Well this morning has been interesting. Popped down to Denton auto after spending a couple of hours sanding and flatting the frame to get it ready for priming. "Great!" I think to myself as I leave the house "I'll just get Ant to have a quick look and make sure I'm ready to paint it, then I'll give a quick blast with the air line and get some tack cloths then we're off". Of course that would have been too easy. Ant spots a small crack on the down tube and gets his file out to discover it's been filled in at some point. So despite the fact I thought all was going well I'm back to square one. Time to stop messing about and get it shot blasted..... Oh what fun!!!!

IIt's been far too long since anything has gone on with joe but I've finally got the frame done! In the end I managed to scrounge an end piece off my mate Steve (cheers dude) and my other mate Neil B (cheers dude) did all of the welding for me at work. Sorry there are no during pictures but obviously I wasn't there to take any. Anyway just need to tidy the welds up now and the frame resto is done. Exciting times ahead!!
