I've got the CB frame now but I'm now in deep head scratching mode :?

Despite being alloy its got 130mm OLN dropouts which is a pain. The frames very overbuilt so weight reduction might be difficult even with major surgery. Also uses an uncommon seatpost diameter somewhere between 29 and 31mm, need to dig out my battered vernier caliper :roll:
All the cable stops seem to have been riveted on and the frames finish is very poor, its lead a HARD life, now I'm feared I'll find a catastrophic crack somewhere. Plus its only got a 22" top tube which for me is a bit too short :(

Very tempted to chuck it into the dark recesses of the shed and give up on it :roll:

I'll scrape off the paint and see if that lifts my opinion of the old wreck :wink:
