Bridgestone BS-7: Rear Wheel

Yesterday was the front wheel, so naturally today was the rear wheel. Disassembled, cleaned, polished, repacked bearings and fit a fresh tire. then of course mounted on the bike for a few pictures:

Rear number, shown with gold pinstriping. My first shot at striping with my new brushes. I actually was decent at it:

I also outlined the red stripe on the tank and rear cowl"

It appears now that I need to start thinking about getting the engine mounted, so I can build an exhaust, run some cable, and make up some footpegs and a rear brake lever.
