...just a shame you can't actually ride it though :?

Which kind of makes the whole exercise a tad pointless does it not?

At some point in it's life, there had been a small lengthways fracture in the top tube that had been repaired.
Unfortunately, to get to the bare metal, they'd taken an angle grinder to a localised area and had ground several flat spots on the tube. This would have thinned the wall thickness in this area. :cry:

The rest of the frame was sound and straight though so I decided to continue with a full 'original spec' resto, although when finished it would be a garage queen rather than a 'rider'


Just seems a shame to go to all that effort and expense then just look at it... :?

Each to their own I guess?

cheers fella... my beer goggles are well steamed up tonight... :wink:

I've never broke one, and I'm a hell of a bunter (as you know, from Mayhem) but yeah I'd have to agree once Mr A.Grinder comes out to play then maybe garage queen is best option...

I see it as art, in a way, and not a waste of an exercise... and what a great piece to have hanging in the house somewhere... far better than a rembrant, picasso or Klimt, maybe... ?
