Moving on to the wheels.  Front wheel has a new 6203 sealed bearing on 1 side, the other is that UK special imperial measure one.... no sealed option, so that was repacked and reinstalled.  Rim was polished with 0000 steel wool.  Pitting and discoloration if you look close, but at least its the original Jones WM1 rim.  Rear (Jones WM2)20190813_223931_resized.jpg20190813_223953_resized.jpg20190813_211105_resized.jpg gets 2 new 6203 sealed.  You can see the axle stack in the picts.  Lots more pitting in the rim on this one.  I'm thinking it might get the silver paint treatment.  Still working on the rim.  Tire is a Duro.   3.00x19 front and rear.

Powdercoated the front and rear backing plate and sprocket.  Just a home hobby kit and a spare electric oven.
