I had a similar issue....

I had it repaired cheaply by a local company, and it all worked out fine.
Some repair pics in here...

This frame is now on the other side of the world, and still being ridden :D

I have just recently had the same place welded on my kona, it'll be fine :D
it looks like one of the brake hangers is slightly bent, this may cause you problems with the U brake fitment/function ?
should make into a lovely steed, I really like these late eighties bikes,
