Model 49 rebuild project

Those look gorgeous, Andy!  Really came out beautifully.  One of the best attributes of the old Bultacos was all of that polish-ready bare aluminum componentry... and when done to perfection - as your wheels are - no other bike is nearly as eye catching, in my opinion.  Of course, once you have your bike looking so breathtakingly stunning... you may become a slave to maintaining that shine and never want to actually ride it!

Please keep the pics coming.  Looking forward to watching your continued progress!

Thanks vintagenut.im really pleased with them. Original rims have a few war wounds but I’m happy to leave them as patina. 
one thing I do need is a right hand fork Bottom. Had the tubes ground and chromed by Philpots.Right hand one was scrap as far as I was concerned but Philpots did a blinding job on them. Unfortunately the right hand slider is really worn. Might have to get it sleeved if I can’t find another.
