Why would you do that to a GIOS?

I'm presuming the frame was trashed / corroded through? They're good for fixie conversions too!

The tubing used on Gios's isn't your everyday 531 or 753 stuff! It looks wider on my Gios
compared to my other bikes, but i suppose you can buy that tubing.

Evening Ian,

That is taking 'parting a bike out' to new heights!!!

My friend Will has a titanium frame with huge damage to the front end - i will mention this option to him about the rear end.
