A freshly greased headset and 3/4 of the other parts cleaned, it's on its' way! Next, a little more polishing and truing for the wheels.

Good thing you decided against a repaint. A shame you polished it and removed the rust, though. That was original British dirt and corrosion. And I'm quite shocked you decided to replace the original headset grease. The world has lost something irreplaceable.

Aside from that, nice bike. (And I certainly hope this crowd has talked you out of *gasp* actually USING it...)
