    Yes Jan taped up all the spindle ends etc with lots of layers of heavy duty duct tape though I will of course strip everything for thorough cleaning with new wheel bearings as the old ones are worn out 😁 BTW Thanks for posting my full frame number something I didn't want to do !

    Doh ! Sorry Ron I mistook the part you were referring to 🙃 I can see now the part that needs to be sorted, I'm finalising my parts wanted list, need new fork spindles, nuts and friction discs are just a few bits needed just to start with.

    Lashed a few bits together this eve just to see how it goes together, there are extra holes in the rear mudgaurd and I had some other stays which seem to match up with them.

    Couldn't find any seat springs at the wkend so cleaned up the old ones which look the biz as modern replacements don't seem to be tapered as per originals.

    Bedford MWD restoration

    Great wkend at the Netly marsh autojumble and the Beaulieu one too, apart from N.O.S. sets of pistons and valves, I found The Bedford Drivers handBook No.1 😁 I had the second edition but never thought I'd find this gem.

    Here you go, called by and picked this little lot up from Deano and got it home to etch prime before the dreaded rust sets in. Most of it survived ok but the front ribbed mudgaurd is dead I think considering it all looked like it had been at the bottom of a pond or under a hedge for yonks it's not too bad, have sold off some of the spares I won't need which is helping to fund this resto, must admit I'm really enjoying restoring this WDC so much physically easier than the MW though I'm sure that there will be the odd part or two that will be hard to find.

    Thanks Jan 😁 I've lost it somewhere in the putor will try to dig it out and read up on the relevant info 🙃 I thought that the grey forks were C and rusty one CO but wanted to make sure that I fitted the correct forks to the frame thanks again for sharing your knowledge 👍 the CO forks are spare if anyone needs a set Inc springs etc

    Here are some images of the front forks both are braized but the grey pair has an extra lug on the right leg as viewed from the front
