Private Repress

HS33 custom polished

So having picked up a another project frame and fork I’ve decided to do something a bit different with the rear brake.

I have a few a few sets of old battered maguras kicking around, thought about painting them... but found with a lot of work they polish up quite nice!

I managed to get the ridge where the cylinder is joined sanded out too.

Not finished yet but already starting to shine :) 

put a good few hours in so far, and only the lever and one cylinder done, the front lever body was a practice, this will be a rear brake.

Should look pretty swish on the bike when it’s done.

Looks like a labour of love. Good luck, I’m interested to see how they finish up.

That'll look excellent, I just don't have anywhere near the patience needed for that.

Ah that looks super nice! And if you can’t be bothered doing another lever, the front lever upside down is more than accepted in the world of trials haha

Done that with some 05’s they come up really nice with little bit of elbow grease
