Thanks mate, paints not great in places. Just waiting for the paint to harden (few days..), then a t-cut, then I can finally start building!

Did you strip it or go right over the existing paint?

Keyed the original paint, and went over that. To be honest I wasn't looking for a perfect finish, most parts to go on it aren't in the best condition. We'll see how it turns out.
Just need a seatclamp, bb (not sure on this), and some time....

Gonna carry on building, cable it up, and give it a spin. Get it welded another day.

Careful on your rides Catastrophic Headtube Failure is a great way to lose teeth as well as a great band name.

Found someone who may weld it for me (says he wants to take a look first...).
Weld the crack?
Or,
Weld the crack, then reinforce?
