Black Beard is his name and he's tough

Well, I have started the work on my new bike, "black beard". I have a black beard so it's fitting that a black beard rides a black beard. Anyway, the front wheel was terribly cupped so decided to rebuild forks( are very dirty) and wheel bearings too while I have the wheel off. Here are some pics. As for sleeping beauty, she's been moved outside behind my shed, don't worry, she is covered up.

The Beard is certainly living up to the adjective :roll: But I guess you will have him prim and proper before too long, as you did with Sleeping Beauty. Happy days.

There is a law regarding "putting your old bike behind the shed"
Even if it's covered! :lol:

Funny stuff. Sleeping beauty is being visited today by a potential buyer. This might be a sad day.
