Next steps were breaking down the entire frame and all components, removing the wheels, pulling the hubs, etc. I took A LOT of photos and made some drawings so I'll (hopefully!) have an easy time reassembling everything sometime in the (again hopefully!!) not-so-distant future. I'll share a few of those images here The most tedious task was getting all the greasy-munge off the parts. Took a combination of heavy duty cleaner, oven cleaner, a pressure washer, and good old elbow grease and scrapers and brushes. I'm considering having some of the parts professionally abrasion cleaned and maybe even painted. But I do tend to prefer doing things myself so who knows which way I'll ultimately go?
Axle nuts held on with a classic mix of cotter pins and rusty nails. Now that's what I call "character".
