Absolutely fantastic re-build.
Just started reading tonight & will now have to revisit each night to get through such an informative thread - a real credit to you Jim.
Picked up so many tips, which at my age I should have used long ago! Bearing drifts - heard of patience/dogged determination?!
I have just started converting a 3000mile Centauro to a (Daytauro)?, so at least all the bits are new & if I can mod the existing e.g rear subframe then I save a lot of work (even if I already purchased said 1100 subframe, blasted, Hot zinc metal sprayed & enamel painted it!)
Did you consider building up by metalspray fot your discs & machining back? I have previously had my 1100 forks machined then S.S. metal sprayed & machined - cheaper than re chroming & although not so shiny (slightly dull) they will also resist any possible rusting.
Again FANTASTIC work & informative unselfish know how shared with us all
