Or, When Life Gives You Lemons.
I could never bear the thought of tossing my beloved Bianchi 928 frame even though it was beyond repair. I'd hung onto it for a few years, just hanging from a hook in the garage and then I realized I could use it as a truing stand, at least for a rear wheel. So I lopped off the broken tubes and stuck it my workbench. A couple of zipties as gauges, and I'm in business.
