Thank you!

Finished up the Camco pedal and hi-hat a week or so ago. Really a great project!! The hardware is good metal, with great fit and finish. Unlike working on, say, a Fiat. Hey, no offense!!
Also just finished a mechanical rebuild - no paint or polish - of a Speed King. (When I finished that I did the same thing to mine, which I've never -- weird -- worked on. Wow! Smooth and quiet!!). From what I understand, it was to remain unrestored because it was going back to an all-original kit of a family member. Cool project.

Attached are some thumbnails of the Camco project. It was great to have the chance, and a lot of very interesting fun. Thanks, Dan!

Thanks again for the opportunity. And cheers for the excellent kit you're building!

While browsing around my photo library, I also found a shot of a polished Speed King! If the guy is still in business, I think he charged me 25 bucks to do this...
A little over the top. But, hey, why not??!
