Pre and Post!

I can't honestly say I cleaned the Sturmey Archer hub on my Raleigh 20, since I got the bike. Here is a picture of the same.
It wasn't that I did not want to clean the dirty SA Hub, but I didn't know what cleaner to use. I finally talked to the boss lady, who suggested a cleaner made of Ammonia and Dawn. This is our own home-made version.

So, I sprayed the hub with the cleaning solution, scrubbed it using my Dollar Store nylon-bristled brush and also used a cotton swab to get to some tight corners.
The resulting clean hub was quite nice looking!

There is still some more cleaning to be done. I might do that as one of my winter projects.

Peace :)
