Re: Just a question
Sniper, an option and not a great one, but I would keep an eye out for a similar frame that could use the components from your frame. Be a lot of work but then you would have lots of spare parts and some times you get lucky and can find a bike at a tag sale or thrift store for next to nothing.
Just a thought. Looking at your pictures, I don't think there is much you could do about moving the chain out of the way aside from cutting and rewelding the stays.
