    20's seat stay rusted through - repairable?

    I'm considering this frame for a restoration project, how crazy would I have to be to ride it? I have access to a welding shop and a machine shop so patching the frame is no issue, but if the frame's rusted through in one place the rest of it has to be suspect... What do you think guys, is it to late to get it back on the road?

    Also, what is it? 20's Elgin maybe?

    I think you'd have to take it to a framebuilder to be sure, but I think it may be in the "wall art" phase of its life.
