There had not been enough brass applied and so the eyelet was only being held on on the edge.
<nods> Yep, a classic "cold" joint that did not wick enough brass into the interface.

Stellar job by all involved. Yay! and Double-Yay! To Dave, SJS Cycles/Thorn and Bob Jackson. So pleased and happy for you.

All the best,

Dan.

Glad you got sorted out.

On a different tack, if you're looking for company while you're in South Africa, give us a shout - I'll send you a PM with my contact details.  You don't mention if you'll be touring independantly but if you are I can help arrange accomodation with friends and relatives across the country if you're needing a place to stay.

Regards
Jean-Marc

small tin of smooth hammerite should do the job.

class job enjoy your tour sounds epic.
