Looking good. Post pictures
To be honest I’m not sure if I’ve damaged the hub getting them out how would I know? Yeah it appears the frame is already powder coated however it just seen really dull and there’s a few wear marks on it. The guy who will be doing my rims can deal with stripping the frame 😂As rough as those bearings are, you can count yourself lucky she didn't destroy the hub. Factory finish may already be powder coated. The larger frames are factory powdercoat. Not sure if the smaller bikes are. Either way fresh powdercoat is super durable and looks great. Sandblasting existing powdercoat off frame is a bitch. I recently blasted powdercoat from Honda frame and it took 6 or more hours
I can’t for the life of me seem to find the inner hub spacers that go between the bearings any help would be massively appreciated.If the hub has gouges or scoring where your bearing resides your hub may be damaged. Best to clean hub bore carefully with solvent and rags or scotch brite and inspect carefully for damage. If you have new bearings on hand you can check their fit in the hub. They should have a snug fit in their bore. They should not drop in loosely. They would require a light tap to send them home. Never tap inner race of bearing when installing. Carefully tap outer race to install with a properly sized driver or careful use of dull bronze or aluminum drift
Thanks buddy.Ooo late to the party but love it! Can't wait to see finished product. Nice list of parts ordered.
