While the front end is still soaking in Kroil, I need to keep moving forward. So the rear wheel is next to come off. Here one fastener is removed after some heat and Kroil:


All fasteners came off just fine, wheel removed, and the inner hub bearings and brake components could be removed. Pristine condition after 105 years! This bike utilizes a Musselman brake system.  


Next steps will be to clean all hub components and replace the ball bearings. Then a new rim, spokes, and wooden belt pulley.
