Been fiddling with bearings...old ones installed wrong ! ( inside with seal put on outside of hub- on both sides) , so grease just coming out the back of the hub.

Bearings themselves not too bad, but clearly have been hamered in ( lots of impact marks on themn& bent roller cage). Outer races very very pitted

One side of bearings done , mudguard on , sprayed in leg & cowl tonight ...

Just need to ;

Do other bearing/hub
Screw down seat legs
Start the chuffin engine again
Secure petrol tank
Buy a new kill switch ( old one 'leaking' current ) and install it.
Buy a new petrol line plug ( old one squirting petrol all over when pumped the bulb )

Thanks to NOS for the right paint ....old seemed to have faded lots in 22 years !
