22. A little more

Some of you may remember this well lubed item from post 18, well it looks a bit different now. In a never ending bid to clean this bike up, I was at it again. Scrub, glop, wipe, rinse......
Of course the bearing needed to come off, so out came the cutting wheel. Being very careful, so as not to damage anything I cut off the bearing and race. Next, masked off the bits that didn't need to be painted and proceeded to squirt some black.

Much cleaner and ready for paint.

Blackened. I guess if old bearings came off, new would have to go on. But first I need to let the paint dry.
