A picture wouldn't show you much. But I can tell you what I saw today. The frame is cracked at the weld where the upper seatstays/rear-fork meet the seatpost tube. The whole rear-end is warped enough that the rear wheel (although in good condition itself) cannot be aligned. The engine appears sound, but the carburettor is cracked slightly. It is now a "parts bike". I'm even more glad now since I found that JC Higgins bike. The "Tempus" will be reborn in due time. In a month or maybe a little more I will be back on that project.
