Just could not wait! The Royal Nord has been dismantled and restoration begun. The BB is stamped RFG and has a backwards C and R marking. The grease was hard and the BB stiff but appears in very good condition. One cotter was very recalcitrant but did finally come out. The headset is in very good condition as well. The hub gears work but it may be a little loose in the bearings. It appears the cog is threaded not the regular 3 splined SA type. I hope I can find a cog with 20-22 teeth. The paint is cleaning up well as only has a few problem areas.
