Just in time !
Got a call from my machine shop guy to say that the fork caps were ready. There was enough material for him to resize and rethread the new [ incorrect ! ] caps I got from the US.
Off to Saxony tomorrow – just for a week – when I get back it’s on with the rolling chassis. I’ve found MOST of the scattered parts, but it was the caps that were holding things up.
Plan is to get the chassis rolling on it’s wheels to give me a bit of encouragement prior to the July tests. At least once it starts looking like a bike and not a pile of bits, I’ll hopefully be reinvigorated !
