Default Re: Old, rare barnfinds??

I've been letting it rattle around in my mind, and what comes to me is to cut out the upper bar on the Colson, turn it over and around, and pick up the arc between the back dropouts and the original weld point with it. Discard the little connecting bar along the way most likely. I think you'll need to take a few inches off the end of the bar (I did for the photoshop, from the seat post end where it meets head post) but you might end up with something like this:

Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
