If I had this frame I would saw off the seatstays and mount a pair of those excellent modern shock absorbers made by Shock Rocx or some other company. Rigid bikes are sooo yesterday.

Have to agree with you there Al. Some quite negative comments in there. Absolutely no need to be ashamed of yourself at all, you did after all rescue the bike to what you want with it not what someone else thinks you should do with it.
