So, there's me thinking I've done with Choppers, having sold my custom Mk2 to Reg from Wicksteed, just keeping one in my collection, my Sprint. Parts are dwindling as I gradually get rid of more and more over time.
I visit my local auctions this Saturday, only to find that there's an SE sitting there waiting for a new owner............ several quid later it's in my garage awaiting further inspection. Pictures to follow.

Story goes that she was complete when the owner got her. Sat in the garden for a few years and got butchered by the look of it :x

Now, who do I know with an original chainguard in original 'rusty' condition?

The handlebars, sissy bar, rear rack and front mudguard will all clean up nicely. Not looking forward to removing that sissy though, it's way in there with at least 9" in the frame :shock:

Thought it about time I spent a bit of time on this. Already had it stripped but tonight I whipped the wheel spindles out for a grease up. I thought I'd got all the diddly parts I needs for the rear hub brake and that nobody had previously had the rear hub apart....

Not so! Can anybody help in the form of a set of shoes and associated parts please?

Hi Jamie

Have you sorted out the bits you need? I've only just seen your request.

I have a NOS set of brake shoes. The guts are the same as an RSW mk3 RSW rear hub brake, of which I have a couple. Let me know.

Cheers

P.s. I've also picked up half a dozen NOS of the oval strengthening pads. Not cheap, but had to have em!

Just seen your post Laurence, all parted up now thanks to JC, thanks anyway. Now it's in bits I am tempted to get the frame painted and start on that long expensive road of resto....
