I never did remove the remainder of the seat tube. - http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... p;t=264720

Instead of resorting to caustic soda, I just bought another bike from a local retro biker. I'm just lazy I guess.

I got this Marin (pictures 1-2)

Fitted some parts I'd been saving

And now I have this Marin (pictures (3-4)

Happy days!

And yes, before you say anything, those grips were the only ones I had going spare....
