Hobbs update

Hobbs Superbe as I found it.

I had an email from someone the other day asking what's happened to the Hobbs I wrote about last year. Well, I'm afraid that restoration has stalled for want of a pair of wheels. I've cleaned the frame up to the best of my ability and reconditioned all the parts but I've yet to get round to doing the wheels.

It's really just inertia that's stopped me from doing it. I'll need to pick a pair of hubs and rims, measure everything carefully and work out the spoke lengths and then get cracking. Now that (hopefully) this bloody awful spell of dreich and miserable weather has passed, I'll try to get the finger out and get the Hobbs on the road for the spring.
