Viking update

I've been off sick today, a chest infection that means I'm struggling to do anything.   So I've sat in the garden with a tub of white spirit, tin of Brasso and miscellaneous brushes and rags, cleaning and polishing the remaining bits for the bike.

The stem is a mess, it was painted red like the rest of the bike, but underneath the paint the chrome is largely gone.  The rear brake is not original but ok age wise.  The brake levers are quite badly scratched but polished up ok.

Got some final bits and bobs sat in paint stripper, lamp bracket, stem expander bolt and seat and stem clamp bolts.

Should be ready to start building as soon as I get the frame back.
