I guess you mean the 'green' barrels? Yes they where surplus. The primairy came with the bike and are NOS.
Engine wise there has a lot to be done and still searching camfollowers...

This NOS footrest support must be a 1953 item in Wedgwood blue...

It did take some time, but at last I did find these ones for the early barrels... :D

It almost did take me 4 weeks to get rid of the polyester resin put into this KH petrol tank long time ago. There was a very thick layer on the bottom of the tank. In some places it was almost half a inch! I was a bit supprised to find out the tank did'nt started to leak at one point, so I suppose they just put it in because of rust... :o

Some small progress...

Postby Paul Slootheer » Sat Jun 01, 2019 4:50 pm

Made some small progress on the 1951 Anstey KH. Did the frame, rear mudguard and front forks and finaly also the wheels. New wheel bearings, spokes and wheelrims. Nice butted spokes for the drive side on the rear. I choose to make the front wheel also a 19'' item because of the much wider choice of tyres. All looks quite nice in my opinion. :)

Simon the rims from Devon are quite nice. I did choose the British Chrome ones. As far as I can see the dimple pattern looks the same as on the original Dunlop rims. However they are a bit more expensive as the ones from CWC. :D
