Well done speakerguy. Guess you feel pretty darn pleased with yourself now huh!? But don't stop there theres lots more you can do yet.
I got my first frame ( a Carlton) from a junk pile when I was a poor student. It was sitting on top of a seriously bent Meryx
I cut and hacked that frame to pieces to make it into what I wanted.
I remember cutting out the rear hangers and trimming the rear stays and re-braizing to shorten the wheelbase. Its so close clearance now that I have to let the tyre down to put the rear wheel in and out , but crikey it shifts.
Iv'e still got my first bike and use it for spinning now. Ahhhh you always remember your first love.
