It took ten months, but it's finally finished (mostly). Here's a quick before/after video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZBS_xnvNgo&feature=youtu.be

OK. Tried three times to flip photo. Replacing wheel bearing was easier.

Fixed it- Mako

Looks as good upside down as it does right side up.

In the video I can see it was pretty rough when you started.

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

Nice work and a fun bike to ride!

Difficult to determine from a pic but the chain looks a bit tight. I'd hate to hear a bearing gave out due to an over tight chain after all those hours of work.
