Managed to get into the garage and restart work on the Honda.

Got the rear wheel out, stripped all the spokes out and cleaned up the hub and brake back plate.

The cush rubbers are shot so went to David Silver thinking they were unique to the SS and then realised they are the same as a CG125. Quick scan on ebay and got a set for £10 less than DS.

New rim tape, inner tubes and tyres planned.

Got the old bushes out, cut around the outside of the rubber then sliced the steel case with a Dremel or in my case the Aldi cheapo equivalent. 

Ordered tyres, tubes and rim tapes all off ebay.

Painted the rear hub and brake back plate.

New front tyre arrived, went for an age correct ribbed front, hate seeing modern tyres on classic machines.

I think I would have put the Cush drives in first and then masked them off . I use coins to mask circular things . Great work though .

Lol, impatience got the better of me.

Bushes won't be here until Thursday.

Good tip on coins.

Great for when you have to spray a clutch cover with a sight glass in it . 😉

Bushes arrived yesterday so took the parts to work today.

Hub in the oven at 50 deg C for an hour and used our big arbor press to shove the bushes in, bottoming them out using a socket.

Put the wheel together this afternoon, just got to tension and true it up.

Got a frowny face off OH for doing this on the dining table.

@linuxrob lol, I got busted years ago by boiling a chain in grease in a tin on the cooker while OH was out. Although I cleared up, the smell of the grease gave me away.

 

Finished the rear wheel today, pretty happy with the run out ,around 1mm in both directions, manual says 3mm max which seems a lot to me. Ground the ends off the protruding spokes, fitted new tube tape and reassembled the brake.

New tyre should be here tomorrow.

Once the rear is back together, I'll take the front back out, paint the hub and fit the new tyre.
