    Brushed the cobwebs of it today ..... made a start from the rear ...... knocked out the bearings and ready for some spit and polish but sadly found a ding in the rim.
    Its holding air ok but what can be done about it ... if anything?

    Get another one or a wheel shop can straighten that, on a side note those tires look pretty cracked on the sidewall

    Hey Grey
    Doesn't that just tick you off, start a project and confronted with an obstacle.
    I have seen wheels straightened but think sourcing another rim might be easier.
    No doubt those tyres have seen better days! what's the front like?

    Swap the tyres off the fizzer. It needs to be punished for its bad behaviour anyway.
    Speaking of exorcisms, the first thing I would do is pick up my angle grinder and excise the "Robby the Robot" hose fittings on the tank.

    Ive run out of towels .... and patience :oops:

    I have plans for those fittings on the tank ;)

    Kiffsta sent me another rim but worth a try?

    Fizzers are still outnumbering anything else 3 to 1 :minigun:
