Like you said it; it is WAY off. Have the frame in my stand and looking down the top tube and thru / pass the seat stays all looks symmetrical - it's as if someone deliberately altered the spacing; but the only thing close to a 113 is an old 3-4 speed - unless they were trying to make it a track frame or fixed gear. What are they? 110?
My SS is 120mm. Older coaster-brake hubs were 110mm, but I can't see someone trying to put a coaster brake on a frame like that (Except I
did, long ago. Long story.) I bet the frame was squashed at some point and the seller is trying to pawn it off as undamaged. I hope you get your money back.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
