I had time this weekend to do a bit more on the little Honda. The wheels were next, as the rims were beyond saving I cut the spokes using my angle grinder and then spun the hubs up on the lathe. This removed most of the corrosion but the brake plates will need some more aggressive work to remove the deep pitting before final polishing. Shame the supplier sent the wrong rims or else I could have built the wheels up.

Wheels laced up, spokes need the ends trimmed slightly with a grinder to save giving the inner tube a hard time. Frame is away being shot blasted, I like to do everything on a rebuild but I haven’t the room for shot blasting. There is a fair amount of rot on the frame so I expect a lot of fabricating and welding before I can start the prep for the re-spray.

I should have added, these rims came from Germany, listed as for a Zundapp but are a perfect replacement for the 16x1.85 rims for the C95.
