Back to tanks.. STA 500
« on: June 21, 2018, 10:23 PM »
Hiya mid kid's.
Stuffed up a wanted for some scabby cranks, received an offer of profiles cheap enough.
Unfortunately they were attached to this so we all know what happened next .
It'd been partially stripped & wheels,seat,post & clamp sold off but everything else still there. Managed to track down the wheels,minus the Perry hubs & have seat etc in stock. Plan is to build it pretty much as it was, might swap a couple of rusty bits for other rusty bits on the way.....

Got the crank on today, really wanted to run a fat chain on something & few sprockets later I've managed to get it on this and clears everything !!!  Really need a new split link if anyone has one floating around.

Love a STA! Agree with you on the bars, they look good, but not on there.
Do you grovel to your master? Do you beg like a dog?

Swapped the bars later that day
Found a wall tyre for the front aswell, fiddling with the brake now & struggling for a fat chain link, this bugger is a real odd size.
