I had the purple Wats (from the previous page) Thought I would share with you the colour I repainted them late December

They were painted the original Watanabe bronze (as close as we could fine) with a purple pearl added into the clear coat which was applied a few times



Photos dont do the colour justice - it is really hard to capture what they look like by camera

That's about it, it's an old read hub and the grinder is on an arm with an hinge. I'll post up some pics next week end.
Hi guys,

A bit late but I posted more explanations about my tool.

Finally finished to get rid of the sand blasting marks on the lip; if I had to redo it I would mask off the lip before having it sand blasted ! Took me 3 week ends to refinish !!!

New post for new question : what valve do you use, where do you get them from ?
Are they identical to BBS valves ?

Thanks!

Had my brother to measure the valves hole, it's 11.3mm.
Same size as some BBS valves stems, which are fairly easy to find here. I'll possibly go for them.

Hi everyone,


I finally found an affordable Watanabe wheel set on ebay:

Model (unknown maybe F8F) 14x6 offset (+42 according the seller but no Watanabe wheel have this offset..? I think the real offset is +40)








Is right an F8F model??


Thanks
