Re: just curious
What era?- they might vary in tube strength on that basis. The older it is, probably the stronger it is.
It would probably motor- you might have frame clearance issues on the chain stays- and I'm not sure how a sprocket would mount with the wide 3 speed hub body-
The top tube is probably pretty short when fitting a tank- may want a rack mount tank
The advantage would be that the 26 x 1 3/8 tires are a really good roll. I have a certain fondness for those bikes although I never owned one myself- graduating right into the ten speed era- They are great commuting bikes and I've put my share of them together.
