Default What are your thoughts

I dont know welding, but I know a welder that I think will do stuff for cheap for me because I hire him to do fence work for me from time to time.

I have an old road bike with a steel frame from the 70's.
I would like to lower my center of gravity on it a bit. I took a profile pic of the bike and drew in yellow lines what I would like to do to the frame.

What do ya'll think. Along with this, I would also get rid of that stem mounted shifter, and lower the handle bars all the way down. I think this will give me a much more stream line and lower center of gravity while still maintaining my 27" wheel size.
I travel mostly very smooth roads, in case you want to make comment on my skinny tires! lol
