Sanding the frame

Started with sanding the frame. Just surface rust on the upside; but quite persistent rust on the bottom side.
I'm out of sand paper!

Front wheel dismounted and sanded

Today is general holiday. So no new sand paper.
Disassembled the front wheel. Ball-bearings should be cleaned and greased.

Invested much time searching the net for a new and lighter front wheel with spokes - but found nothing suitable.
So I will keep the original front wheel for the present.

A soap opera

Dirty work

This week I had remarkable usage of soap.

Obtained new sand paper and worked the chassis further.
As like with the wheel fork this is a hard and dirty job too.
But I make progress...
