Hi
Soft solder will melt at 180-190 deg C.

I would echo what Ian says - a lot of parts on a flat tank Sunbeam are soldered, so high temperature stoveing will see the tank, rear chaincase etc, fall apart!

P.

Thanks Paul. By the way,What temp would the solder fail. Did this model come with no electrics whatsoever. Theres no lights,wiring, dynamo etc. Cant find any info on the net

Stove enamel would have been the original finish for frame, cycle parts etc but you need to be careful as some modern re-enamellers won't be familiar with older bike parts. It's increasingly difficult to get it don in the UK.

Thanks Ian.

Hi
Is it OK if I use stove enamel black paint. There's a guy here who specialises in stove enamelling.

if it fits the platform and goes in the right direction,  probably yes

Thanks Andy

You will also need to check the spindle height of the mag above the platform. As standard, mags were either 45mm or 35mm. A 35mm type can always be fitted with a spacer plate between the mag and the platform.

There is quite a nice looking 1922 model 7 on UK Ebay at the moment looks quite good as far as originality goes and worth borrowing the pictures  ;)

Found it Wessex. Thanks
