Guzzi wire wheels refurb in progress

No pictures of the Italian day at Cassington as last Saturday was probably the most wet and miserable day that we've had for a long time with it finally drying up in the very late afternoon.
  Instead, here are some pics of the progress so far been made with my Cali 1100 inj wire wheels destined for the new project that is making slow progress in the workshop,as I made a right royal cock up with the seat that I'd had recovered and I'm taking the newly modified item back tomorrow to pay for another cover and also had some bike work in.
   The wheel hubs have come up well considering their condition with just some small areas of pitting in the alloy. Both wheels have come up a treat too,except there were limits with the rear around the spoke holes with once again suffering from the dreaded pitting / corrosion. As the polisher said ...."there is only so far you can go before you are taking away too much metal"
   I had to use a slightly unconventional way of transporting the rims which seemed to cause a few looks of amusement while riding through Bristol.
