I have had another good look at the frame and unfortunately I think it is too far gone to rescue.
When I took it out of the cupboard LOADS of shards of rust came out of it which have been released since the BB and steerer have been removed.
I just can't be sure that it is completely safe and structuraly sound inside.
So I have taken the decision to ditch it and concentrate on my other frame... the GT Aggresor (around 2004)... this isn't as interesting or as cool as the forcetrax at all but I am unable to invest in much at the moment so will have to work with what I already have...
