Today's bounty. No cable hanger, but at least I can finish the front end. Can't believe how good those decals are for six quid.

Got sick of seeing it with no seat on. So I threw on a cheap POS layback I bought recently. I need a seat on there to do the brakes.

Oh and.



Been fighting the pins ever since. Got most out using various methods, four are never coming out so I need to bring the drill over.

Sweet !.

When I bought the sprocket for this a buddy pointed out there was a bash for it on Ebay. Unfortunately it cost more than the sprocket, so I stuck it in the watch list and passed. Today I got one of those emails where you get 20% off etc. So I grabbed it. Big beefy bugger.

Why I hate laybacks.



Will work on the pedals tomorrow. Then it's just fitting the bash and it's done.

Bash on.



If I ever say I am going to do more pedals slap me or something. These have taken me longer than I could strip and paint a frame FFS.



They need a good clean in thinners now before I can start painting them. The shitty part is done now though. I even smoothed off any damage.

Put what was left of the old primer onto these yesterday. Just to stop them oxidising and causing me more work.



Have ordered some carbide bits to try and get the stuck pins out, because a regular drill bit lasted about ten seconds. I only really need to get one out, due to the pin pattern I have in mind.

Got those on Ebay last night. Cost me 25 quid. Which is about 1/5 of what Primos are going for right now. Going to try and remove the pins (as I have tons of new ones). Then strip them down and paint them red (got all the paint and prep stuff).

I liked the look of these when I saw them on your thread. So when I saw a nos pair of the magnesium version in black up for grabs the other day, I bagged them for one of my newer rides. Cool 👍🏼
Low end French does it for me ! 😂

Those pedals new were ?130. They do a modern version with sealed bearings, ?130. Nothing Demolition is cheap tbh. It's owned by Brian Castillo (S&M Castillos) and Rooftop (Mike Escamilia). Kris Bennett rode for them too.

I got as far as primer. Then I tried to drill out the hardened studs (4, IIRC) and wrecked my drillbit. I bought some carbide ones, but the T1 has swallowed all of my time.

It's literally try and get them out, paint red and the bike will be done.

Correction  :LolLolLolLol:

Not sure why I stated nos, it was late  ;)  The ones I got are the newer version I reckon. Still a very nice pedal for my ride.

Very much so. So much better than Primo IMO. They are so common now it's almost a joke.

Thanks dude. I will finish the pedals  :LolLolLolLol:

The S&M is the last bike I can own due to space. The T1 came up, then the S&M, so I just didn't paint and rebuild the pedals. That's literally all it needs.

Forgot about these until one smacked me on the head. Forgot I had hung them in the loft  :LolLolLolLol:



Just need to polish back the letters and rebuild. Plenty of time to do that the way this bloody weather has been !

Bodies are ready to be built.



Cleaned all of the parts in Gunk today. There isn't enough bearings though. The guy I got them off said he rebuilt them. I bet he dropped a load the plank. So I have ordered a bag of 50 1/8 bearings after measuring them.
